Each vintage of fruit expresses itself a little differently. When we taste in the cidery, we often find ourselves reaching across time to piece together thoughtful blends.
Oud Blanc is a blend of skin contact riesling (34%), 2020 Perry (33%) and 2019 Cider (33%).
What's it like?: It kind of smells like a pineapple chalky candy. After a heated discussion, we landed on pineapple Fun Dip (if that ever actually existed).
It has this distinct tropical note to it, like if someone made a dry pineapple liqueur and blended it with orange wine. The tannins are pronounced: chalky apple tannins as well as crunchy grape tannins. The texture grabs you; experientially it's like sucking on a plum pit.
It's got the psychological essence of sipping nice things on a hot beach. Distinct from past vintages, but far more representative of where our pallets are today.
