A true rosé cider, made from organically grown Aerlie apples which have a distinctive red flesh – which give it its wonderful coral blush hue. A single vareital rosé cider with no other coloring or fruit to create its beautiful glow. This semi-dry, subtly sparkling cider has a fresh strawberry aroma, a candy apple flavor that creates a medium mouth feel balanced by a slight astringency. Savor floral and leafy aromas and a juicy freshness that leads to a dry finish. The perfect al fresco summer cider – that sings all year long.

Vintage: 2016. Made is exclusively with the Aerlie Red apple. This special cider apple has pale green skin and when it is fully ripe, the flesh turns watermelon pink and show through the skin. It is a rare, beautiful and delicious apple. We were amazed and delighted to discover that it also makes a wonderful cider.
Pairs with poultry and spicy foods, such as Thai dishes. A wonderful dessert partner with rich buttery cookies or an Italian style cake.
We make less than 250 cases a year, sometimes far less if the apples don't set well. A true precious gem.
