Revel - Cosmos (Cider / Wine Blend) / 750mL
Revel Cider (Guelph, ON)
Cosmos is a blend of Northern Spy (66%) and skin contact Gewürztraminer (34%). Apple varietals are just as layered as grapes, and Northern Spy shares a common florality with Gewürztraminer. The aroma here is softly floral: blooms of elderflower, chamomile and rose bushes. The flavour is complex: dandelion and warmed honeycomb, along with petrichor in a wildflower meadow. Petrichor is the smell of rain evaporating. We've seen it in our beverages before, but this time it's like rain evaporating off an untouched grove meadow of white flowers. Tasting Cosmos is the feeling of discovering a precious pocket of the natural world, secret to all but the most adventurous of humans.
