E.Z. Orchards grows French, English, and Early American apple varieties for their new endeavor. The apples are harvested late in the season, pressed, and fermented in stainless steel tanks for up to six months. Natural bottle fermentation creates a bubbly effervescence- similar to sparkling wine.
The label features a simple, red apple graphic on the white backdrop. A brief description is typed on the back label.

The Cidre leads with a gentle aroma of freshly crushed apples and natural yeast. The color is golden, yet cloudy. On first taste, the Cidre has a bright, floral, perfume character. The aftertaste reveals complex apple flavors with a dry, tart finish. The texture is light.
E.Z. Orchards' 2009 Cidre can be enjoyed with a wide variety of savory foods and/or dessert.
