Batch 2019 Patois Cider ' Bricolage' Traditional Method Sparkling Cider


We have another beauty from our friend Patrick Patois Cider!  These cider are super limited! When you see any of Patricks Ciders pop up, grab them while you can! A litte information on this beautifully made Tradional Methode Sparkling Cider.


This cider is the central focus of the project. Patrick picked all fruit from unsprayed, abandoned, or seedling trees in rocky soils at higher  elevations.A cuvée of chance and discovery. The heat and drought started harvest in early August and limited later disease pressures, offering a wealth of trees holding sound fruit with phenolic depth.A gift of a first vintage. Lovely notes of Violets, plumskins, river rocks, mountain mint.
