Quebrada del Chucao Sidra 2013
This all natural cider is made without any chemicals and minimal intervention with only hand pruning the trees once in the winter. The apples are all hand harvested and then the crushing and scratting(chipping) is done by hand in a wood press that was made with local wood from the same forests as the orchards. The juice is left to sit in the cold for 18 hours and then clarified with a long, slow, natural 3-4 week primary fermentation. The cider does not go through Malolactic fermentation and after a 2 month resting period they bottle it for the secondary fermentation. The cider is completely dry, fresh, funky, earthy, austere, and perfect to pair with dry roasted nuts, cheese, and earth savory driven dishes. 200 cases produced.
