The 2018 growing season brought us a dearth of bittersweets but an abundance of Golden Russets and other heirloom apples…thus a revival of the Beckhorn Hollow blend.
Each year, we tend the orchards to raise healthy trees and produce high quality fruit. 10 months of hard work in the orchard, a few months in stainless steel tanks or neutral barrels fermenting with wild yeast, and the vintage or pommage begins to reveal it’s self. When we sit down to blend our ciders, they tell us what they want to be rather than the other way around. So when this blend emerged as we tasted through the 2018 ciders, it surprised and delighted us.
The synergy of bodacious Golden Russet blended with tannic wild pears and the searing acid of Goldrush resulted in a beguiling cider with a focused crystalline structure and layer upon layer of aromas that unfold in the glass.
