Sparkling effervescence flows through the insanely pale yellow, near clear cider to form a loose pile of white bubbles that disappears faster than believable.
This cider’s vibrant aroma of crisp, fresh apples is beautifully underscored with just the slightest aromatic presence of white grapes, which wonderfully compliments the forward Granny Smith apple characteristic!
The addition of Pinot Grigio grapes adds spectacular complexity to this cider as the light apple sweetness is cut by a dry white wine like flavor that, with the cider’s carbonation almost resembles champagne, with an apple twist!
Bright, crisp, and refreshing, this cider’s carbonation dances on the tongue with vigor, resembling champagne in both fizz and the pleasantly drying finish.
Pacific Coast Cider’s Pinot Grigio Hard Apple Cider is darn hard to put down because it’s masterful blend of apples, with a nod to the Granny Smith variety, and Pinot Grigio grapes make for an exceptional pairing that easily commands attention, sip after sip. Absolutely delicious!
Score: 93 / 100 – Exceptional
