Still cider is cider unadorned by bubbles. Ciders made from true cider apples have an ideal balance of components for pairing with food. Cider occupies a unique place in the beverage spectrum: It has both the tannins to cut through and dissolve fat from food and the acids to clear, refresh and renew the pallet. Our still ciders, one from a single orchard and the other from a single esteemed cider variety, showcase the quiet, unassuming way that cider can enhance and synergize food to make flavors pop and sing. These ciders are best consumed at cellar temperature in order to allow the tannins to open up.
Beeswax, sage smoke, petrol and stone fruit on the nose. A soft and chalky mouthfeel with flavors of peaches, limes and leather. The finely balanced finish is warm and dusty with a rich espresso, tart apricots and more peaches.
This is a lovely testimonial about how wonderful the Albee Hill 2014 is. So good, really good
