Mixed Case Bottle 11 LoHud Wine of the Week: Poma Aurea, Sidra de Asturias


For 12 weeks, we feature a wine, and include tasting notes and suggestions for pairings. At the end of the 12 weeks, we’ll review our Mixed Case, and recap the choices. Each mixed case will be chosen by a local wine shop owner, who will also become our wine expert-in-residence during his or her tenure. (So should we need recommendations for a holiday, for example. we’ll ask.) We’ll get a new expert for each case. Right now, we’re working on our Mixed Case from Piermont Fine Wine & Spirits.

This is bottle 11 in our series. To see the others click here: Mixed Case from Piermont Fine Wine.

LoHud Wine of the Week

Poma Aurea, Sidra de Asturias: A hard cider made with hand sorted apples and pressed using traditional old wooden presses. It tastes of apple, flowers and earth. Region: Asturias, Spain. Goes with: anything. Try it as an aperitif. Price $15. Why I chose it: totally unique stuff from the Cider country in Spain. It is better than almost all available Champagne.
