Poverty Lane Orchards & Farnum Hill Ciders in New Hampshire are producing high acid dry ciders that burst in aromatic flavors. The Dooryard Still Ciders, featuring all this and in a very robust way, bringing out flavors in food pairings but also remaining light on the mouth.
Made in generally small batches, Farnum Hill’s Dooryard Still Cider (they also make a sparkling) sticks exclusively in the world of semi-dry and dry ciders, so don’t expect anything sweet. While each batch varies in specific notes and tannins, one can be prepared for high acidity, citrus hints and noticeable tannin. Though dry throughout, Dooryard frequently lingers on fruit aromas on the nose and in the finish.
Specific batch numbers can be found on the back of each particular bottle of the Dooryard Cider, with tasting notes linked on the website.
