South Hill Packbasket 2019

Tasting Notes

This cider is made entirely from wild pippin apples according to the traditional method, using wild fermentation. A precise and extreme example of terroir, it is aromatic and austere with aromas of citrus and sage. This is full and lively with hay, bergamot, and cucumber. The palate gives soft smoky earth flavors and minerality. 


The trees are wild and unmanaged which develops unique sense of terroir. Many of the trees were germinated along the edges of pastures and are barely noticeable to everyday coming and goers. The packbasket is an homage to the trees far off the beaten path that they are hauled to the road on staff backs.
