Danforth Rd Series: Harrison 375mL 2020


A single varietal still cider using rare Harrison apples. Tastes like an orange wine (!)

A single varietal cider made using rare Harrison apples from our estate orchard. The first Canadian single varietal using these apples. Fermented in barrels with wild yeast, the cider has higher acidity and soft tannins finishing with hints of mandarin.

Harrison is one of the few true North American cider apples and was documented as early as 1808 for cider in New Jersey/NYC. The variety was thought lost post Prohibition until rediscovered recently.

Review from Rick VanSickle (90 points): “…shows a brickish colour in the glass with a nose of bruised and baked apple, apricot tart, marmalade and spice. It’s quite tasty on the palate with bright apples, nectarine and spice (but not overdone) with a crisp, long finish.”
