Patois Parallel Voicing Co-fermented Pet-Nat
Patois Cider is a couple of dreamboats (Patrick Collins and Danielle LeCompte) making dreamy Virginia cider from various orchard terrains, gleaned and otherwise. The ciders are fermented with ambient yeast and minimal sulphur and every year they are delicious and reflective of the vintage and the terroir. Parallel Voicing is a co-ferment of apples (Wickson, Ashmead’s Kernel, Harrison, Gold Rush, Seedling from Morris Orchard in Monroe VA) and Vidal Blanc (Bluestone Vineyard in Bridgewater, VA) and the juices were blended to finish fermentation in bottle. Parallel Voicing 21 saw six months in bottle on lees and has zero sulphur added. It has lovely tropical fruits this vintage and you should treat yourself and take a bottle home.
