Aaron Burr - Choke Pear (2020)

Aaron Burr - Choke Pear (2020)

Wild choke pear (seedlings) all over Sullivan County. Balanced-bitter (not sharp or sweet), off-sweet, pinkish Naples-yellow color. Cloudy w/ potential medium to high effervescence. 500 ml.

“The Cidery”, which produces Aaron Burr Cider in Wurtsboro, New York, is a small homestead farm dating back to the early 1800s.  on this land began in 2006 with the planting of a cider-orchard. All of our ciders are simply Autumn fermented, Winter aged, and bottled just prior to Spring dryness. Our ciders are dry, naturally carbonated (if carbonated at all), unfiltered, and un-sulfited, with no additions like sugar, flavors, tannin, etc. 

This focus is founded on the belief that early Americans drank history’s best cider.

Delicate and complicated. Sure, there’s “pear” and “apple” reference points but the shear diversity of notes keeps you guessing. It’s wet and travels fast, and it would be too affable if not for the strong tannic finish. It lingers for a long, long time and repeats a number of fruit notes.
