Maker: Sleeping Bear Winery (Brooklyn, Michigan)
Nose: rich, hint of tartness, butter, apple pie, minus the spice
Palate: Suprisingly dry and hefty, pleasantly effervescent
Finish: More surprises: sweet and delicate
Parting Words: Very food friendly particularly with shellfish and chicken. A pleasant, delicate cider that could benefit from higher ABV , but overall is well-balanced and not syrupy or gimmicky. A good, solid cidere de table. According to the Sleeping Bear website, they are currently sold out, but I’m sure there are some out there on store shelves and hopefully a new batch will be coming along later this year.
