E.Z. ORCHARDS

Project Info

Project Description

Our Cidre is fermented in the Traditional French method requiring diligent care of the fruit prior to harvest. We delay harvest allowing the fruit to mature on the tree capturing the optimal character of each cultivar.
The harvested fruit is refrigerated to preserve quality, and compose the texture in preparation for the press. The fruit must first be washed and inspected to insure the integrity of the juice is not compromised by spoilage. The fruit is processed through a blade mill that cuts the apples into small pieces. Now we are able to press the milled fruit in a rack and cloth press, test the blend for balance, and transfer the juice to a stainless steel fermentation tank. We control the fermentation temperature extending the process 4-6 months to retain the subtle nuances of the fruit. The cidre is bottled before fermentation is complete, resulting in a fine, natural carbonation.

Hawk Haus is named after the kestrel nests found on the property and is a blend of Jonathan and Yarlington Mill apples.

Poire is a very light straw color with a fine haze and some sediment in the bottle. Aromas are delicate—slightly yeasty with freshly-cut pear. On the palate one is struck by the unusually fine, gentle carbonation. Mouthfeel is big, round, soft and juicy. Let Poire breathe and warm and you will be rewarded with juicy fresh pear flavor and a slight, pleasantly buttery character which may remind you of fresh pears served with a very fine double-cream brie. The finish is dry but not jarringly so, with a beautiful long finish of fruit.

E.Z. ORCHARDS ROMAN BEAUTY

OREGON, UNITED STATES

EZOrchardsCider

Roman Beauty Cider is a North American style Cider, crafted primarily from Roman Beauty, an heirloom apple we have grown since our beginning as Orchardist in 1929. The balance of the blend is made with Yarlington Mill, an English bitter sweet apple, and Granny Smith. The fruit is well matured on the tree to enhance the aroma and composition of the fruit for
fermentation. The cider presents an aromatic body that places you in the cider house and farmyard. Acidity is noticeable, not dominant, harmonizing with the build of orchard ripe fruit. A soft lazy bubble carries the cider across the palate adding length to the flavors. The process for production of Roman Beauty Cider is reminiscent of how cider was made on the farm in 19th century North America.
