Riestra, Sidra Semi Seca
Origin: Sairego, Asturias, Spain
*semi-dry style sparkling cider (sweeter)
"In our cellars, the cider brews silently, drowsing in old chestnut tree barrels and modern stainless steel casks, waiting for the moment of its shipping to sidrerias (pubs where cider is poured) all over Asturias.
Smell: Scents of sweet baking and slightly floral. Fresh and aromatic.
Flavor: Very balanced among acids, bitters and sweets. Reminds of table apple. Excellent behavior in glass, with a rosary of very maintained bubbles. Perfect as appetitive, with fish, pasta and rice. Also very suitable for pairing with desserts."
