Annapolis Valley Cider Company Heirloom Cider (650ml)
The Annapolis Cider Company is all about local. Their apples are grown in nearby orchards, pressed into juice just down the road, and fermented at their cidery in downtown Wolfville. Their ciders are always made from 100% Annapolis valley apples. The apple varieties they use vary throughout the year. Enjoy the diversity.
Heirloom is the Annapolis Valley Cider Company’s signature cider. It is crafted from cool fermented juice made from traditional apple varieties such as Gravenstein, Golden Russet and Northern Spy. A final touch of freshly-pressed apple juice gives this cider its golden hue and authentic, fresh apple aroma. The apple varieties we use will vary from batch to batch. For instance, for our inaugural release, it was backsweetened with Cox’s Orange Pippin, a heritage variety that originated in England in the early 19th Century. Because Heirloom has beautiful apple aromatics, solid tannic structure and a refreshing effervescence, it pairs well with dishes where an aromatic white wine or sparkling wine would be a good fit. Pairings include fresh salads and cheeses, many pork and chicken dishes and oysters. RS = 10g/L. ABV = 8.1%
