Spring came early.
Spring is blend of 3 different ciders, aged on 3 different plums for about 7 months. Blue plums, Red plums, and Golden plums, all grown in Niagara.
Now that we've got the numbers out of the way, here's a poem:
Three ciders matured on plums over the winter.
Three ciders came out this Spring to play.
Dancing sunbeams and crunchy plum tannin. Is there a plum La Croix?
There should be. For now, there's Spring.
What's it like? Spring surprisingly smells like strawberry cotton candy, without being sweet. It also smells like, well, plums! The ripest ones though - we get them freshly picked out of Niagara once each year. No pasteurized purée here, just real fruit.
The flavour is tart art — crunchy acidity meets plum stone tannins and a chewy-ness that feels adjacent to our favourite Provençal rosés.
