Notes / Commercial Description:
New England Wild Saison Aged in Oak Barrels.
The base beer for Apricot Stonington was brewed with 100% Valley Malt and fermented by our native New England mixed culture which was collected from grape skins at Saltwater Farm Vineyard in Stonington, CT where JC & Esther Tetreault were married. This New England Saison is aged in French oak Chardonnay casks for nine months to layer in a bright vinous character before being blended back into stainless to carry out a secondary fermentation on apricots for four months. Bright aromas of white wine, apricot and hay lead to flavors of earth and bright apricot on the palate. Apricot Stonington finishes with biscuity malt character, moderate-high acidity and a finishing spice from the oak. The Stonington New England Saison series was conceived to embody the Tetreaults’ path toward realizing their dream of building a true New England farm and brewery.
