This vintage of "Chimera" is a whole new beast. All of the organically farmed apples are from the Willamette Valley this year instead of in the Columbia Gorge & Hood River AVAs. The quality of the four apple blend is markedly improved as Luke had a lot more control over picking and was able to do the processing of the apples with some help from Son of Man cidery. The Pinot Blanc & Muscat are also from two organic sources in the Willamette Valley while the Pinot Noir is from Elkton AVA. Everything was processed and fermented separately before blending and bottling.
