TASTING NOTES:

Newtown Pippin is not only one of the oldest varieties grown in the United States, but also in California. As the first of our CA Farms Series in a can, this cider features dry-farmed Newtown Pippins from Five Mile Orchards, a multi-generational family farm located in the historic apple growing area of Corralitos. The drier climate of the Pajaro Valley leads to the concentration of aromatics lending intense, rich notes of honey, melon, lemon, lime, and grassy meadows. On the palate the mouthfeel is full, yet crisp, likely due to the cool marine air that flows through the valley at night. Rich flavors of caramelized honey, apple skin, peppercorns and apple brandy in tandem with a 7.9% ABV, lend a perceived sweetness to this bone dry, unfiltered cider. Fine bubbly effervescence coarse through this brilliantly golden liquid, inviting you to truly experience the Newtown Pippin.
