Spire Mountain Dark & Dry Wins Gold
Dark and Dry Cider won the Gold at the Tastings World Cider Championships. Read the tasting notes below:
Bright burnt sienna color. Toasty aromas of caramelized apples, pears and nuts, light molasses, maple nut fudge, and chocolate raisins with a silky, crisp, finely carbonated, fruity light-to-medium body and a smooth, medium-long zucchini nut bread French toast, hint of maple sugar, and paw paw finish. A sweet and dreamy nose leads to a sophisticated palate in this roasty and food-friendly cider.
