Light, strong berry overtones. Fresh and fruity in nose, followed by a burst of apples. Rich and succulent in a well-balanced frame.
A blend of local apples and European elderberries are used.
Elderberries are added to fermenting cider then scooped out when the desired color and flavor extraction have been obtained. We distill the elderberries to produce a kind of grappa. The wine is aged in oak barrels for 6 months to a year, then bottled with less than 1% residual reducing sugar.
This wine ages well in the bottle for 3-5 years but is quite drinkable soon after bottling.
Perfect with pasta and duck. Serve at room temperature.
