Cider Sponti 2018Size: 0
Sponti is a spontaneous cuvée – a cross-regional representation of New York State terroir, that changes a little each year, focusing on a small collection of orchards in NY’s Finger Lakes, Greater Lake Ontario region and Hudson Valley. Sponti’s blend is always based on Northern Spy and native NE heirloom apple varieties. The apples are a brief sweating apples receive a short maceration of roughly 18 hours prior to pressing. Native fermentations kick off without temperature control and the cider is then aged for an extended period on the gross lees with moderate to no battonage, depending on the vintage. Bottled by traditional method without disgorgement; no fining or filtration. Typically sulfured only once, at racking, based on pH.
