Revel – Ostara Dandelion (750ml)
Cider Learn More
Just outside of Guelph, Ontario, Revel Cider has been slowly building up their repertoire, making a wide range of apple ciders, perrys, fruit wines, and even vermouth! Revel only ferments using spontaneous methods and natural yeasts. They are all fermented to zero grams of sugar, and usually barrel aged and/or blended with fruit, or wine must. They’re delicate and wonderfully complex products that taste as good as the labels look!
Ostara has a shockingly intimate dandelion aroma – bright plant acids are tempered by a subtle sweetness and texture imparted by the pollen. This vintage you’ll find an additional herbal depth, and slight tannin from the flowers.
Ostara is the name for a series of ciders pairing golden plums and flowers. Each blend is a 3 year project. In this one, the apples were harvested in 2019, plums in 2020, and the wild dandelions were foraged in the spring of 2021. This version of Ostara was aged on Golden Plums for 8 months. To it, 100lbs of dandelions were added that were foraged all within 50km of the cidery.
Ingredients: Apples, dandelions.
Spontaneously fermented with the ciderys native microflora, and zero added sugar.
