Time and Place (Barrel Aged, 2020)
Time and Place is one of the toughest things we make. Getting the texture and aromatics right takes time.
Time for our native microflora to break down the starches in the tannic apple skins.
Time for oxygen to soften and brighten it just right.
Time for us think about harvest, and what it really means to work with something as ephemeral as fruit.
This version is more than just Time and Place that spent some time in wood. One year in neutral oak softens the cider and lifts the fruit in a special way. The sum is more than its parts.
The aroma is apple pie cooling on a Provençal windowsill, lacings of honeyed vanilla orchids lingering in the air. Candied apple dances on satin tannins with tight bubbles. This cider is taut with energy.
This bottle, backyard bocce and the Amelie soundtrack are the perfect afternoon.
