COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Gravenstein sparkles in this bright, crisp cider. The refreshing acidity is balanced with a touch of sweetness. We sourced the Gravs and other heirloom cider apples for this blend from organic growers in the Sebastopol area. The Grav lends its lovely aromatics, while a mix of “bittersweet” apples—which were specially developed over the centuries for fermented cider—imparts lively tannins. This is Sonoma County heritage in a bottle. Viva la Grav! Great as an aperitif or celebratory bubbly, or pair with aged cheeses, spicy foods, and a hammock. Silver medal winner at the 2013 Great Lakes International Cider and Perry Competition.

Bottle @ joet’s Party Palace. Thanks, Joe! Clear golden pour with a small, quickly dissipating white head. Aroma starts off a touch horsey. Lots of apple, some honey, and a touch of caramel. Light fruity tartness. Nice funky and sweetness to the flavor. A hint of tartness on the back end. Some barnyard, lots of apple, and honey. Subtle caramel, some fruit skin, and yeast. Well done.

Thanks Ken for sharing! Pours a clear pale gold. Funky apple skin aroma along with some sort of sharp sweetness, not apple-like, maybe maraschino cherries? Dry and vibrant, tart sweet and mildly acidic. Just what you want out of a Gravenstein cider. Nice stuff.
