Eves Cidery Albee Hill Shale Terroir Dry Cider 2019 7% 750ml New York State
EveÕs Cidery orchard sits in a glacially steepened valley, among rocky hills in New York State. The marks left by the glaciers are dominant features of the landscape: layers of exposed shale line cliff-like slopes rising from the gravelly, cobble filled aquifer below. They serve as a constant reminder of the geological time at work here.
The idea behind this cider comes from the question: can you taste a place? Each year Eve's harvest a field blend of apples grown on this rugged site, ferment them with native yeasts & bottle them simply; still & dry.
The powerful, linear structure of this cider reflects the layers of shale on which the trees grow, through the cracks in which they send their tough roots.
