Wine of the Week - Blackthorn Cider


This is a nice semi-sparkling cider, imported from England and available in the U.S. at a surprisingly great price.  Well worth checking out.

You'll find the expected apple scent on the nose, with maybe a hint of pear.

The taste is breezy, crisp and enjoyable.  Lightly tart apples with no bitterness and just a bit of minerality.  The flavor recedes and leaves you with a semi-dry aftertaste.  Very refreshing.  Ideal for pairing with light meals - fish, chicken, rice, vegetables.

6% alcohol
