If you are looking for a new beverage to serve at your wedding celebrations or reception. There is a cider made with a wine blend that is available.

Niagara-on-the-Lake, Canada.
“We broke new ground with the introduction of Shiny Apple Cider,” says Angela Kasimos, the winemaker at the Small Talk Vineyard. “We love to experiment with different blends, and have found a winner with our Icewine Cider. It is still sweet enough to pair with a dessert, but refreshing enough to enjoy on its own. It is a great match.”

This newest innovation from the Niagara winery is both gluten free and vegan friendly. And it features a full apple complexity with notes of pear and caramelize toffee apple. Sounds great!

The regular SHINY is made with Riesling. And it is $15CDN for a growler.  Check their website for deposit and refill prices.

A second flavor is Pinot Noir Wine. It is Cider with a twist! This is made with sparkling wine that is made with 100% Ontario fruit. And a full apple complexity with notes of strawberry, plum and candied fruit. Price is $20CDN. $5 growler deposit and $15 refills.

The spritzy drink tempers the sweetness of the well aged 2009 Vidal Icewine. Its launch was for the 2015 Niagara Icewine Festival that is held each year in January. The cocktail has floral notes, honey and brown sugar, with an caramel apple finish. And the cocktail pairs well with blue cheese, or on its own for dessert.

The Niagara area is known for having the ideal climate for producing some of the world’s best wine grapes, and other fruits. Vineyard owner, Hank Hunse said, “by using natural apple juice made with fresh Ontario apples, our creation is a product that everyone can enjoy.”

For price updates on the SHINY 24 pack and individual, please check their website online.

The Small Talk Vineyards is an innovative boutique VQA winery in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Canada. It is a family run estate vineyard that has been operating since 1955.
