This is a blend of Golden Russets and other heirloom varieties with wild pears. The pears bring tannic structure to this aromatic & citrusy sparkling cider, made using the Traditional Method.
Eve's Cidery is a small family farm in the hills of Van Etten in upstate New York, USA. They make naturally fermented ciders from their own organically grown fruit as well as wild-foraged apples & pears. They work in tune with the bi-annual nature of the orchards - with over 50 varieties of apples - and each vintage brings something different. Ciders range from Traditional Method sparklings to still & dry ciders with structure & acidity that work well as an aperitif or on the dinner table.
