Annapolis Cider have released two new ciders

 (Wolfville, NS) - Annapolis Cider Company have launched their new signature cider "Heirloom". It is now available at our Wolfville cidery and at private wine stores and the NSLC. Heirloom is an 8.1% ABV cider crafted from cool fermented juice made from traditional apple varieties such as Gravenstein, Golden Russet and Northern Spy. A final touch of freshly-pressed apple juice gives this cider its golden hue and authentic, fresh apple aroma.

They have also released their next Something Different. "Muscat Infusion” is a 7.1% ABV sparkling cider made by infusing Muscat grape skins in their apple cider, thereby combining our love of Nova Scotia apples and grapes. Muscat is the most aromatic grape variety grown in Nova Scotia and is revered for its distinct tropical and floral notes. The skins from fresh-pressed Muscat grapes were incorporated into an actively fermenting cider made from diverse apple varieties. To extract the flavour from the Muscat skins, they used a punch-down technique typical of red wine ferments to extract aroma, tannin and colour. The resulting dry cider was balanced through an addition of freshly-pressed apple juice to produce a copper-hued cider with hints of tart apples and a delightful Muscat aroma. $0.50 from each bottle we fill at the cidery will be donated to Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Annapolis Valley.
