'THE ELDER TREE' CIDER
HERITAGE STYLE CIDER • BONE DRY • UNFILTERED • 7.5% Alc. by Vol.
Elder Tree is an homage to the rich apple heritage of Sebastopol and the dry-farmed, heirloom apple varieties grown at Devoto Orchards, located on Gold Ridge just west of Sebastopol. This cider is curated from a blend of dark-skinned, late-harvest apple varieties including Arkansas Black, Kingston Black and Black Twig. The overall bouquet is rich with aromas of mature apple skin and brandy. On the palate it is full-bodied, with a heightened tannin profile that provides a hearty mouthfeel. The barrel aging, elevated alcohol content and structured dryness balance the size of the body to provide a long, velvety finish.
