Whitewood Old Fangled Heirloom Blend Cider
100% heirloom variety blend fermented from Washington grown Jonathan, McIntosh, Gravenstein, and Winesap apples. Old Fangled is a dry crisp cider with clean citrus flavors ranging from juicy navel orange to clementine and meyer lemon. Ample amounts of heirloom apple acidity are balanced with a touch of sweetness and a bit of champagne-like tannic character finishing with a hint of black pepper spice.
Made from fermented apple juice, cider comes in a number of varieties. English cider is dry, with fruity, tannic qualities and low carbonation. This can be found cask-conditioned in England. Normandy is another major cider-producing region, with a sweeter, more effervescent, very complex style. Ciders produced elsewhere are often sweet, simple beverages for mass consumption, though there are some good English-style ciders in North America and Norman-style ciders in Quebec.
