WILD FERMENTED CIDER
STYLE: DRY ABV: 6.9%
This is the Dragon’s Head Cider version of a farmhouse cider. Rather than carefully selecting a yeast strain for the fermentation, we allowed the wild yeast present on the skin of the apples to ferment the cider. It’s a bit of a fun gamble, but one we believe is worth taking.
Appearance – hazy, straw color, some sediment may be present
Aroma – pineapple, green tea, apple blossom
Taste – lemon and young pineapple flavors are followed by mild spice and lingering grapefruit notes
Mouthfeel – medium body with mild astringency; lightly effervescent
At Dragon’s Head Cider, our award winning ciders are made with a traditional approach, which means you will never find us using apple juice concentrate, over sweetening our ciders, or adding other flavors to our ciders. We love the story that apples and pears can tell all by themselves. And so we keep it simple. Press high quality fruit, ferment the juice, put it in a bottle. We believe one of the keys to creating great cider is to have control over the entire process. For this reason, we do the pressing, fermentation, blending and bottling all right here on the farm.
Wes and Laura Cherry moved to Vashon Island in 2010 with the dream of planting an orchard and starting a cidery. Dragon’s Head Farm, named for the dragon who guards the apples of immortality in the Garden of Hesperides, is now home to over 3,000 cider fruit trees as well as our production facility. Our ciders are currently sold in Washington, Oregon, and California.
