Dooryard 1312

1312 is still, altogether dry, a lucky blend of several 2012 fermentations.  Its tannic structure comes chiefly from Dabinett, Yarlington Mill, Major, and Somerset Redstreak; its fruitiness from Golden Russet; its acidity from Wickson, Ashmead’s Kernel, and Esopus Spitzenberg.  Aroma through finish, we find peach and apricot (fresh & dried), pineapple, various citrus fruits, pear, smoke, and rocks, with pleasingly dynamic acid, tannin, and fruit throughout.  We couldn’t make very much of this, so store a few bottles if you especially like it.
