Arkansas Black

Notes from the CiderMaker: Arkansas Black is a mildly tannic apple that descends from another famous American cider apple - Winesap. The cider is mineral forward on the palate. This version is augmented slightly by blending with Albemarle Pippin prior to fermenation to add to its acidity.

Flavor: Light body with a crisp finish. Sour cherry and cranberry with light citrus notes. Crisp minerality.

Food Pairings: Pork dishes; sharp cheeses; barbecue
