Farnum Hill Extra-Dry

Farnum Hill Extra-Dry Wine Details

Description: Pale gold, bubbly, dry as it will go. Richly aromatic, suggesting myriad fruits of the earth, and the earth itself, with a complex, palate-cleansing balance of fruit, astringency, and acid. Made, like Semi-Dry, from a range of late-harvest, difficult apple varieties. Alcohol content 7.5% by volume. 750 ml. bottle, mushroom cork with wire hood. Twist out the cork by hand, expecting a genial pop rather than explosive champagne-style pressure. We find in tastings that of people newly enjoying Farnum Hill blends, four out of five prefer Semi-Dry to Extra Dry (except in New York City where, for some reason, people divide about evenly or just go for both.)
