Red Byrd Orchards "Workman" Semi-dry Cider 2013
"Fresh and crisp, with balanced acidity and pleasant residual sugar. Rich in color with apricot, rose, beechnut, and maple on the nose. Followed with a palate of sweet clementine and orange zest up front and a full bodied buttery back palate. A crisp finish with fine supple tannins and notes of raspberry. A very friendly and approachable cider, appropriate for drinking on its own or paired with most foods. “A cider for the worker in all of us.” A blend of – 45% Mixed Heirlooms (Roxbury Russett, Tompkins King, Northern Spy), 16% Wild Seedling apples, 12% Sharps (Dolgo Crab, Brown’s Apple), and 10% Bittersweets (Domaines, Major). 2.0% residual sugar 8.2% alc/vol"
