Cider Crate Tasting Notes:
Smell: Medium bright aroma. A candied peach with some astringent notes. White grape and slight sweet dessert apple.
Initial Taste: Minimal bite. Smooth, juicy and sweet peach, some light white grape notes and a touch of dessert apples.
After Taste: Apple dissipates, leaving a bright, white grape/peach fruit wine element (minimal traditional riesling notes, even though it is a blend of that). Non-apple elements linger. Slightly astringent but mild compared to a typical riesling aftertaste.
On ice: Very little, if any change.
Additional Notes: Chill Street’s Afternoon Delight is a blended cider/wine drink. Smooth and more fruit-like than a typical riesling, its got some white grape notes, smooth and juicy peach along with a touch of sweet, dessert apples. Blended so it remains soft and does not pick up any strong distinct notes from the wine or cider. Easily could be confused for a Peach fruit wine. Light and easy to drink.
