Brewed by Eve’s Cidery
, New York
Autumn’s Gold is our most complex and tannic cider. It is made from a blend of over 20 English, French and American cider apple varieties including Kingston Black, Brown Snout, Binet Rouge and Golden Russet. After picking, we “sweat” the apples in wooden crates for nearly a month to allow them to dehydrate and develop deeply ripe flavors. Autumn’s Gold is aged in oak after the primary fermentation, and aged sur-lie after the secondary fermentation. It takes 9 to 12 months before this cider is ready to drink.
Autumn’s Gold is golden, bubbly and off-dry. It has a cidery, appley nose, smoky, tannic undertones and a rich, warm texture and lingering finish. One of the great delights of this cider is pairing it with cheese such as Parmigiano Reggiano, aged English Cheddar, or a unique raw-milk cheese from your local dairy. Serve Autumn’s Gold with your main course alongside savory foods such as truffles, smoked sausage, or parsnip soup.
