Blossom Barn Cidery
Rouge Valley Perry 5% abv (750 ml)
Inspired by Normandy perries and reminiscent of dry Champagne, Blossom Barn’s Rogue Valley Perry is a small batch, barrel aged perry that offers a taste of southern Oregon terroir. Crafted on their Applegate Valley solar-powered family farm, this cider begins with heirloom pears, which are milled, pressed and the juice is aged for six months in French oak chardonnay barrels. The resulting perry is refreshing and light with a creamy mouthfeel and moderate brightness tempered by oak and pear tannin.
Pair with: pesto tossed pasta peppered with garden fresh cherry tomatoes (served warm or cold)
Dragon’s Head Cider
Perry 6.3% abv (750 ml)
Heavily awarded, Dragon’s Head Perry is crafted with seedling pears, unique to Vashon Island. The seedling pears are harvested from trees that were likely planted by homesteaders around 100 years ago. These Vashon pears are blended with true English perry pears and some heirloom pear varieties. This handcrafted Perry presents with floral aromatics, moving into honey, melon, and rose notes. A subtle sweetness, a delicate pear flavor, and lovely round tannins make this a show stopper.
Pair with: your quintessential backyard BBQ fare like marinated chicken or veggies, foil wrapped potatoes, corn on the cob
