Aromatics of rose petal, fallen leaves, pine needles and crushed Jonamac apple. The mouthfeel is bright, dry and refreshing, with flavors of lemon rind and crisp apple, and a mineral finish.
The apples for this cider are sourced exclusively from our Jonamac apple orchard located on the William Heritage Estate property. Jonamac apples ripen very early in the season and during the cider fermentation process, this variety tends to be very aromatic.
The apples were handpicked and immediately pressed at a nearby cider house. The juice was then transported back to the winery to start fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Jonamac apples during fermentation are uniquely armomatic. This cider is unfined & unfiltered so it will have a natural hazy / cloudy look in the glass. This style offers a soft creamy texture and is more reminiscent of fresh pressed apple cider.
