2015 Tilted Shed "Graviva!" Semi Dry Cider, Sonoma County (750ml)

SKU #1297033

This small cidery, run by a couple in Sebastopol, California, focuses on heirloom cider trees. No two vintages are alike--this 2013 vintage was just released in June, 2014. (Note that the cider is cannot be labelled with the 2013 vintage date because of regulations for cider above 7% abv. However, Tilted Shed only producers cider once a year, using fresh-harvested apples, similar to a winery's vintage.) From the producers: "The Gravenstein sparkles in this bright, crisp cider. The refreshing acidity is balanced with a touch of sweetness and a bit of barnyard funk. We sourced the Gravs and other heirloom cider apples for this blend from organic growers in the Sebastopol area. The Grav lends its lovely aromatics and tartness, while a blend of sweet (low tannin, low acid) and bittersweet (high tannin, low acid) apple varieties impart flavor and lively tannins. This is Sonoma County heritage in a bottle. Great as an aperitif or celebratory bubbly, or pair with triple creme cheeses, salmon, and a hammock. Viva la Grav!"

Additional Information:


United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.


- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
Specific Appellation:

Sonoma County

- Second in fame only to Napa, this "other" valley offers just about every climate and topography imaginable. From its cool and fog-enshrouded coastal regions on the far west, to the sprawling Alexander Valley on the boarder of Napa and the many little dips and peaks in between, Sonoma has been a vital wine-grape-growing region since the mid 1800s. Important sub-AVAs include Chalk Hill (known for chardonnay and sauvignon blanc), Dry Creek Valley (where zin is king) Knights Valley (largely cabernet land), Russian River Valley and Sonoma Coast (both celebrated pinot and chardonnay zones).
