COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Red Hill, named for the small community just north of Albemarle CiderWorks, is a blend of traditional cider varieties melded with the juice of Winesap and Albemarle Pippin apples that are grown in the red clay soils for which the area is named. It is a complex and earthy dry cider with a bright acidity and tart apple flavor. Red Hill’s light tannin pairs well with lighter meats such as pork, chicken or turkey as well as with oysters, creamy blue cheeses, and veal scallopini.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 14, 2013
750 mL bottle shared at the Baltimore Late Late Summer Gathering, 9/14/13. Pours a clear golden color with a thin ring of white head that lasts. Aroma of dry apples, mealy notes, vanilla. The taste is tart apples, earthy notes, vinous notes, mild earthiness. Medium bodied, lingering tartness.

Kinz (3256) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUL 25, 2013
Surprised to be the first to this one. Medium clear gold. Aroma is of tart apple, slight earthy note. Flavor is a dead on match. It is almost like a typical American cider with a hint of a French cider floating in the background. The tartness is present, but not too over the top at all, and just adds a layer of complexity. Nice stuff. Paired it with broiled fluke, quite nice.
