Aquila Cellars Summer Triangle NV
Summer Triangle is not a really a cider but a hybrid class, a base of blended variety apple juice that was fermented with plums and yarrow, blended with a small % of wine and macerated with other medicinal herbs grown in or native to our region. Only 6% Alcohol!
We like to think of it as an energetic reflection of the growing season which started hot but soon cooled down from the sporadic monsoon rains we all had patiently waited for. The herbs were not fierce in nature as they can be from growing under this high elevation sun. The herbs were pungent but delicate and we were delicate with our cold extraction. We racked some of the blend into a barrel with piquette lees and left the remaining bulk of the blend in tank to age on its own lees, both for 3 months. Bottled with no carbonation and minimal SO2.
We ship wine to most states with a $100 minimum order for shipping. Shipments are sent on the next Monday if weather permits. We do not ship beer and spirits.
