Clear with a subtle blush, our rosé cider gives aromas of fresh-picked apple and lilac with hints of strawberries and yeast. The mouth-feel is light, lively and fresh. On the palate, classic hard cider characteristics—crisp-tart acidity, a refreshing CO2 mousse, bright fruit and a hint of sweetness—balance beautifully.
Wölffer No. 139 Dry Rosé Cider is made exclusively from New York State apples. A sizeable portion (15%) are grown locally at the Halsey Farm in Bridgehampton, just 3.6 miles from our vineyard. The majority (85%) of the apples in this special cider are grown by DeFisher Fruit Farms near Rochester, New York. Winemaker and Partner Roman Roth chooses dessert apples (vs. cider apples) prized for their flavor and aromatics.
