Treasury Cider 'Burr Knot' Cider 2020

The origins of Treasury Cider are steeped in early 20th Century US history: the farm's founder, Henry Morgenthau Jr., served as Secretary of the Treasury under FDR after a career in farming and conservation. Fishkill Farms, the home of Treasury Cider, is located just down the road from our shop in East Fishkill, on 270 acres, planted to over 80 varieties of apples, as well as other fruits and vegetables. Parts of the orchard are old-growth remnants of the original plantings by Henry, whose legacy is being carried on by his grandson, Josh Morgenthau. With a commitment to organic farming practices and Eco-certified integrated pest management, the team at Fishkill Farms grow their American-heirloom, European bittersweet, and dessert apples with utmost care and attention. This yields some delicious results, like this bone-dry, bottle-conditioned, unfined and unfiltered cider. The ‘Burr Knot’ is a powerful and expressive blend of heirloom bittersweet and crab apples: Harrison, Medaille D'or, Goldrush, Mettais, Chisel, Idared, Wickson, Yarlington, Dabinett, Porter's Perfection, Binet Rouge, and Brown Snout. This medium-full bodied cider delivers earthy, savory notes with a hint of autumnal barnyard funk and subtle tannins on the finish. Perfect for pairing with hard cheeses, creamy pastas, or roasted root veggies or pork loin.
