Sampled at their Port Townsend tasting room. A single varietal rosé cider made from Hidden Rose red fleshed apples, which are unique for Alpenfire as they are actually a dessert apple variety (not heirloom or cider apple variety). These are rare in the U.S. as the majority are shipped to Japan, where they can fetch $12-$15 per apple! They tried to grow these in the Alpenfire orchard, but they weren’t thriving in the cool climate, so now they source them from Oregon, where the variety was discovered in the 1960s. The cider is a lovely blush color. It smells and tastes very fruity, of watermelon and strawberries, with some complexity. Very full flavored.
