Review: Hard Apple Cider with Pinot Grigio by Pacific Coast Cider

Sweetness: Semi-Sweet

ABV: 5.50%

Cider Maker’s Description

With pale straw color & perfect clarity. The candied apple aromas are layered with hints of crisp Pinot Grigio. Significant effervescence hits the palate with candied apple flavors and lime, citrus and Pinot Grigio accents, followed by a soft, lingering finish and a little tannic bite.


  • Crystal clear, very light color. Looks a lot like white wine. 


  • Tiny bubbles continue to rise after pour


  • green apple, melon, floral 


  • tart, light sweetness, green apple, 


  • Acidic and moderately astringent 


  • Medium, cool, crisp finish

Matthew favors dry hard ciders with body and leans towards traditional English styles, and he’s also developed a serious appreciation for hopped ciders and creative flavor infused ciders. Though he prefers sweets in solid forms, he does enjoy semi-sweet to sweet ciders responsibly when the mood strikes. Learn more about our Chief Cider Curator here.
