Field-blend Cider 66%, Concord wine 33%
Mary’s Orchard, Corralitos, California
This concord was sourced from a single, massive old vining pergola, picked on September 27, 2020, with apples picked September 26, 2020. The two fruits were fermented separately, with concord macerated until it was dry fermenting. Roughly 66% of the cider was blended with 33% of the concord wine to create a color unfamiliar in wine bottles. The true grape flavor of concord is eased by the soft apple cider and blended to create a balanced and refreshing beverage.
