Boars Back Cider Cask 16-57 (750ml)
For centuries in the Annapolis Valley, farmers have pressed apples and fermented the juice in cool cellars over many months as a means of preservation and to yield a diverse range of cider refreshments. Boars Back Cider uses native and selected wine yeasts to ferment pure apple juice in oak casks, for a natural taste that harkens back to years past. The cider is bottled with a small amount of residual sugar remaining, allowing for the fermentation to continue and finish in bottle, yielding a naturally sparkling dry cider.
Pressing apples seasonally at their peak of ripeness, Boars Back Cider slowly ferments in oak casks throughout the cold winter months. Cask 16-57 is a medium sparkling blend of quintessential Annapolis Valley apples. A blend of 3 different casks with apple varieties that include Russet, McIntosh, Cortland, Honeycrisp, Northern Spy, Rhode Island Greening, this cider is bottle conditioned for natural carbonation. Drinking well now and expect to improve over the next 6 months.
