Stowe Cider recently starting spinning the popular collaborative track Touch of Grape, part of their Rotating Track series. One of the Vermont cidermaker’s most popular limited-edition offerings, Touch of Grape is made with local grape skins from Lincoln Peak Vineyard in Middlebury, VT, and Fresh Tracks Farm in Berlin, VT.
After two previous pressings, Stowe Cider fans pined for the return of Touch of Grape, and the cidermakers responded by dropping the needle on the perennial hit. Touch of Grape is aged on Marquette grape skins, giving it an eye-pleasing ruby hue and delicate notes of dark fruits and spice before a super dry, tannin-rich finish.
Touch of Grape is available now in 4-pack 16-ounce cans at the Stowe Cider tasting room and in select stores throughout Vermont, New Hampshire and Massachusetts. Like other Rotating Tracks, this cider won’t play for long, and those with a palate for puckeringly good ciders are encouraged to grab it while they can.
