Blue Moon Farm Cuvee II 2020

Released in the summer of 2021, this cider is pat of the bulk of what Nic and Tess made during the 2020 season and some of their (and our!) favorites to drink.
The Blue Moon ciders tend to be more ethereal and delicate in fruit and aromatics. This bottling represents the second of four harvests from this farm, where Tess and Nic hired a barge to transport their box truck to the island, a delightful adventure that only furthered the awe of having the privilege to work with this fruit.

We suggest storing them upright rather than on their side for settling and clarity, and drinking chilled.

Blue Moon Farm Cuvée II is made from apples from an 1890s historic homestead on Waldron Island.

Type: Cider, Fruit Pet Nat
Vintage: 2020
Size: 750ml
ABV: 7%
Grape: Apples
Region: Waldron Island, Washington, USA
Vinification: The fruit is all either unsprayed or organically tended. The fruit has been picked and processed by us, with help from my cousin Annie (fruit she picked that my uncle grew is featured in the “Cuvee Annie”) and our one intern (and hopeful future employee). Everything was processed and produced without additions, and bottled as a pet nat. That is, no added sugars, yeasts, oak or sulfites at any time ever. Everything was fermented and aged in glass or stainless steel, and nothing was or will be disgorged.
