2012 Vintage. Bottle split with Kraddel. I drank most of it. 2012 Vintage. Procured from CiderCider. Clear sparkling golden with no head. Lots of ripe apple, touch sweet apple juice, hay, light forest-like note. Taste is sweet sparkling apple juice, lighter than usual, very mineral, quite boozy for what it is, faint oak & lots of alcohol in the finish. Sparkling body, easy. Okay but too boozy.
