Transparente, Cidrerie du Vulcan "Crisp, Swiss Cider"
Cidrerie du Vulcan, Transparente, 2020
The Cider: Tastes of sweet fresh apples before finishing in a dry, round, refreshing end. "Fruitytangy" apple on the nose. Cider has been a staple beverage in northern parts of the world for centuries, more popular than water at times, and it is no surprise why.
The Winemaker: Jacques Perritaz is the mastermind behind Cidrerie du Vulcan, located in Fribourg, Switzerland. We had the honor of meeting this lovely man at a recent wine fair and his ciders completely blew us away. He is certified organic and only works with ancient and rare Swiss apple varieties. His orchards are all untreated and dry-farmed and some of his trees are up to 200 years old.The Place: Fribourg, Switzerland
