Utopia, Blažena

Write a Review

They work with Czech heritage apple varieties from several sources of up to 80 year old trees that offer a very diverse array of apples (55 different varieties in 2017!) of very high quality. 

All of the Utopia cider is fermented only with spontaneous wild yeast in 225 liter oak barrels with zero sulfur added. From the fall through the spring these wild yeasts ferment the cider to dryness, and then starting in the summer, wild cultures of lactic acid bacteria work on the cider, reducing the sharp malic acid, adding subtle levels of acidity and complexity.They bottle the ciders without fining or filtration, and they are allowed to rest and mature in bottle alongside of the barrels.
