This wine is a cross between a Cider and Wine!
Sauvignon Blanc is handpicked and pressed whole cluster. Gravenstein apples are processed by Gowan cider and our winemaker picks it up the day it is pressed. At this point the apples and grape juice are blended together and then fermented in oak barrels. 100% of the apple wine is cofermented with native yeast. The wine is filtered prior to bottling to help maintain the natural malic acid of the apple cider.
When it comes to thinking outside the box you cant think further outside than this. Combine apple cider from an ancient orchard and old vine Sauvignon Blanc… what do you get? Apple Wine and its pretty darn tasty! Gravenstein is an apple cultivar that originated in the 17th century. The fruit is known for its tart flavor, which makes it particularly good for apple cider. The name is Danish and named after a palace in Denmark… fun fact! Its was introduced to North America in the early 19th century by Russian fur traders.
