Authentic and delicious, Eve Cidery Darling Creek Semi Dry Cider, is a blend of English and French bittersweets and bittersharps, fruity American cider apples, and the cidery own seedling varieties. The aroma is a play between sweet honeysuckle, apple blossom and red apple, herbal gin, licorice, and allspice, and green tomatillo and sapling. The mouth feel is big and thick with a soft but dry, velvety texture. The finish is full and balanced, with lingering notes of sweet, sour apricot. All of Eve Cidery sparkling ciders are made using the Champagne Method. They harvest and press their apples as they mature from early September through November. They blend at the press based on harvest dates and pH for a healthy fermentation. After the primary fermentation in the fall, the ciders are racked and left to mature in stainless steel over the winter. In the early spring, they blend to find dynamism and synergy. The cider is then bottled with a liqueur de tirage, yeast, and sugar, to initiate a secondary fermentation. In the cool cider barn, the secondary fermentation proceeds slowly, taking nearly 4 months to complete. The slow secondary fermentation is what creates tiny, persistent bubbles of unrivaled elegance which lift aromas out of the glass and impart a lively, creamy mouthfeel. After a period of rest they disgorge eject the yeast every bottle by hand and top it up with a dosage of cider. This lengthy and committed process allows for the ultimate cider experience. Eve Cidery is a small family run orchard and cidery located in Van Etten, in the Finger Lakes region of New York State. The Cidery grows apples and other tree fruits and ferment artisanal ciders. They firmly believe in nature, art, good food and hard work. These beliefs influence the way they expertly farm, make cider and sell their high quality products. They strive to capture their values and bottle them into their fine ciders for you to enjoy.
