Aaron Burr Homestead East Branch Apple-Cider
The apples for this bottling are sourced from the hills overlooking the East Branch Delaware River. Like all of the apples for their Homestead Ciders they are foraged from wild, abandoned orchards that have not been treated with chemicals for years. This cider is a beautiful amber color, is a touch off-dry with a sharp, tangy acidity, and is a bit more effervescent than some past releases. Classic woodsy, funky aromas mingle with hints of citrus, carrot, and baked apple and the palate is mineral and backed by sturdy tannins. This would definitely do well on your Thanksgiving table, and it would be interesting to see how it develops over the next couple of years.
