Whitewood South Sounder Cider
South Sounder is as native to South Puget Sound as it gets. This unique cider experiment is made from 100% locally sourced apples from our friends and farms in and around Olympia and the South Sound. Our 2012 South Sounder blend exhibits flavors of apricot, green grape, with a tannic bite and bitter spiciness provided by Oly’s antique heirloom apple selection, the South Sounder blend finishes clean with a ripe meyer lemon acidity set against a light yet rich fig-like sweetness.
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.
