Rose Hill Farm, Discordia Cider 2021
Apples & grapes
Hudson Valley, New York, United States
Loosely inspired by koji fermented vegetables, Discordia is an ode to experimentation, with unexpected results. We hand-harvested and buried whole cluster hybrid grapes in bittersweet apple pomace to semi-carbonically ferment for 17 days before pressing. The resulting juice was bottled Méthode Ancestrale and allowed to rest for more than two years. Juicy, volatile and tannic. Love it or hate it. Unfined and unfiltered.
