Boars Back Cider is now called Wild Wines & Spirits
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. Wild Wines & Spirits uses native and selected yeasts to ferment pure apple juice, pressed on-site from apples they hand pick themselves. The cider is fermented slowly over the cool winter months, aged in barrels and tanks, then blended and bottled the following year.
Pouring deep tawny in colour, with concentrated aromas of baked apple, wine-like barrel character, and a mildly effervescent carbonation.
This cider is a 2017 Vintage, single barrel-fermented, native yeast, semi-dry bottle conditioned cider made from free run juice of Russet (55%), Cortland (30%), McIntosh (15%). Bottled 22 cases in February 2018, with 15g/L naturally occurring residual sugar and 5% abv.
