Sparkling gold clear Off-Dry cider featuring Gold Rush, Stayman, Winesap and Pink Lady. This cider is fermented with local honey, often times referred to as a cyzer.
We named this dry cyzer (a cider fermented with honey) after Apis mellifera, the European honey bee. The complex sugars in honey add to Mellifera’s intricacy, leaving a hint of sweetness on the palate even though this cider has the lowest amount of residual sweetness of any of our ciders. This cider is more wine like and complex than many of our other ciders with the hint of honey, earthiness and citrus notes are evident. It has quickly become the favorite of the cidermaking staff. This cider is only sold in our Monterey tasting room or our online store due to our limited production.
