Carbonic Chisel Jersey
Chisel Jersey is a very old cider apple that originated in England in the 1800s. It's too bitter to eat fresh, so its grown exclusively for cider.
The apples in this bottle are from the Niagara region, from trees planted 2018.
We've worked with Chisel Jersey a couple times now, and decided to put it through carbonic maceration this vintage—adding a plushness to moderate its acid and lift those natural citrus notes.
What's it like? Carbonic Maceration has rounded out all the edges of Chisel Jersey. For us, it's all orange creamsicles, apricots and ripe peaches—without any residual sugar of course.
That citrus notes remind us of our favourite crabapple of all time (Hyslop), with moderate tannins and a kiss of peach fuzz.
Overall, Chisel Jersey feels superbly balanced.
