Sundstrom Cider Columbia Valley 2014
Made with 60% Northern Spy, 40% Newtown Pippin - both important North American heirloom varieties that were once leading apples in the Hudson Valley region. All the apples for this bottling were grown in Columbia County, NY. The cider was fermented slow and cool for approximately 6 weeks without temperature control before being aged in a vat for 5 months, with an additional 6 months on the lees in bottle. No filtration, no fining, methode champenoise, without disgorgement. The cider is high-toned and vinous with an incredibly long finish, and bone-dry.
