2020 Sparkling Apple Cider

When we started to play around with hard cider from our existing orchards several years ago, we determined that more "cider" apple trees would be required to create something great, so we've been hard at work planting dozens of heritage trees to improve our blend. These young trees are now coming into production, adding layers of aromas and flavors to the blend. We can't wait to share our creation with you!

The Terraces Sparkling Hard Cider has a pale straw hue, with inviting aromas of fresh crisp apples & light citrus notes that jump from the glass. The palate highlights the complexity of heritage cider apples while showcasing crisp acidity, a long lasting creamy texture and a dry finish. Produced m├ęthode champenoise in the style of very dry, fine sparkling wine, this cider is in fact more like a fine Champagne than any cider we have tasted.
