COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Moa "Poppet" Cider is a careful blend of pear and granny smith. The cider is fermented and then aged in used Chardonnay barrels until deemed ready for bottling. A very refreshing drink and a great alternative to beer. Served chilled.

Tasted from a 375 mL bottle purchased in Fort Collins, Colorado. Aroma is just like a white wine with just a bit of apple. Flavor is just like a slightly apple flavored white wine. Isn’t this just a white wine with apples??

The influence of the Chardonnay barrels definitely comes through, giving vanilla and buttery qualities - the result a very vinous cider. In fact, you even have to remind yourself that it is a cider and not a wine. I do prefer my ciders more refreshing and quaffable.
