2020 Ancestral Method Cider

~ May Release ~

We made this cider from apples we picked around Naramata - crabs from a neighbour, some heritage baking apples from a friend and Ambrosias from our backyard. We also got our hands on some traditional cider apple varieties this year and added them to our blend. This is a wild yeast, ancestral method cider. It spent six months on the lees before being disgorged by hand this spring. It is as fresh and crisp as our 2019 vintage but with a wonderful added complexity from the heritage cider apples. We chose to keep this cider preservative-free so please keep it cool.

  • Method: Ancestral, disgorged, no dosage. Wild yeast, zero additions.

  • Ingredients: Ambrosia, Manchurian Crab, Hyslop Crab, Kingston Black, Stokes Red, Michelin.
