ALBANY — Nine Pin Cider Works, New York’s first farm cidery, has announced the release of Cidre Rosé, a collaboration with product from Niskayuna-based Capoccia Vineyards.
“We’re thrilled to collaborate with Justin Capoccia and the team at Capoccia Vineyards to create the full-bodied cider that is Cidre Rosé. Cidre Rosé is the perfect, ready-for-spring craft cider,” said Alejandro del Peral, co-founder and cider maker, Nine Pin Cider Works.
Cidre Rosé blends the modern world of New York craft cider with old world methods of rosé wine making. This cider is made from a unique combination of Samascott Orchards apples, co-fermented with the skins of New York grown grape varietals: Concord, Traminette, Chancellor, and Noiret from Capoccia Vineyards. The resulting fusion of these local ingredients gives this cider a full bodied flavor profile with complex grape aromas.
Cidre Rosé is available in 12 oz. cans at Nine Pin’s tasting room in Albany and through retailers carrying Nine Pin products.
