Gravenstein Single Varietal - Limited Release
Old Fangled Series - 2012 Harvest Single Variety Heirloom Cider from Gravenstein apples grown in Washington State. ~ 6.7%
Our Gravenstein Single Varietal is a brilliantly clear pale straw, the aroma is a straight forward very clean citrus. The flavors we are getting are also clean, crisp, and very dry with notes of Meyer lemon, grapefruit, under-ripe satsuma oranges, and sharp green apple. There are some similarities to the Old Fangled Blend as "the Grav" contributed heavily to it, however it is different and we've bottled a good deal drier too.
