Fable Farm Jalu sparkling apple/grape cider, I adore Fable Farm, pure life force
Fable Farm ciders are uniquely lifted and energetic because of the dance between fruit and volatile acidity. There is an organic logic to their production, built out of myriad experimentations, rather than through an allegiance to a particular tradition of cider production. Their main apple wines all start with a solera-style base wine which they bottle as Stillpoint. This is a mix of foraged apples from all around Vermont, picked and pressed over multiple weeks, aged in separate barrels and then slowly blended over time as they see fit. This is their base for a number of sparkling apple and grape wines.
A medley of foraged cider apples and Vermont grown grapes were used in the creation of this 2019 sparkling delight. 55% macerated cider and 45% white, red and grey grapes, this living apple grape wine brings a light and refreshing sparkle with nicely balanced cranberry-cherry notes to your senses.
