Apple Wine 6 Pack
A little about the wine:
This Apple Wine is in a style reminiscent of the old world. Bottle conditioned, dry, tart, and a little bit cloudy, by design.
These apples were planted circa the great prohibition of alcohol (1920-1933). The apples were hand harvested by our grape picking crew. The intention of these apples from day one was to make brandy and cider (folklore has it). Thus, the variety of apples (Newtown Pippin) have been undesirable for others to purchase because of their tannic and sour nature which is more reminiscent of a grape. For more than 30 years, these apples sat untended and feral. Fast forward to 2015 when a young self-proclaimed "aspiring farmer" named Joe Hewwit (apple joe in my iPhone) appeared on the scene and restored the ancient trees over the course of a few years.
Because of the age of these trees, the gallons per ton are minimal. I suppose the drought may have contributed. Nevertheless, the yield was miserable. Now, luck is our favor (all of us reading this, and me writing this) to have the privilege to enjoy an old world style Sparkling Apple Wine from ancient trees that are nearly a century old. This is the only vintage; I sure hope you love it like I do. It was a major pain in the ass to make.
