Millstone Cellars Farmgate: Drink Wine Wednesday Review

Farmgate Cider

Millstone Farmgate
Jonathan, Stayman Winesap, and Smokehouse Apples
Maryland Price: $16.00

Yep, this Wine Wednesday Review is reviewing an apple cider—not wine. Farmgate is from Millstone Cellars, the makers of Hopvine .This is a barrel-aged cider featuring tart heirloom apples.

Farmgate is pale yellow and effervescent in the glass. The nose yields citrus and apple. This dry cider has citrus notes with a hint of smoke on the palate. I paired Farmgate with a salmon. steak. The dryness and bubbles cut through the fatty salmon for an excellent pairing.
