Winemaker/cider maker Richie Roberts uses only Niagara apples, presses while fresh and lets the well-settled juice ferment in a combination of stainless steel at cool temperatures and in neutral oak barrels. I love this everyday cider with its pale yellow colour, light carbonation and tingly acidity on the palate that shows off ripe, bright apple, squirt of lemon and hint of toast. It’s clean, crisp and expressive on the palate with refreshing apple, touch of sweetness balanced by citrus acidity and broad texture through the finish.
