With the folks from Habana Cigar Shoppe! Sunday, Sept. 3, 4 to 6 pm (on the other side of the tasting room from Side Show Willie).
Paperbirch Cassis is a hand grown, hand picked, unfiltered, unfined, hand made wine. Berries are set in large tanks, and blended with sugar and yeast and hand turned twice a day with a large stainless steel punch, and large cheese paddle to ensure even mixing, for a period of two to four months. This is the old Burgundian style. It ensures a solid distribution of yeasts and sugar, and a consistent flavor profile, rich and aromatic.
The currants were grown in Columbia County. The berries are hand picked and then blended. We use only black currant berries in our Cassis, to recreate the classic, rich, complex, tart, sweet wine that has been so popular for centuries, in the oldest way we know how. The label is a Shaker inspired design, an homage to the local Shaker heritage in Columbia County.
This luscious dessert wine made from black currants is smooth, slightly sweet, and slightly tart. Fabulous and full of fruit.
