Fenceline Cider was recognized with three awards from this year’s Great American Cider Competition and four awards from the Great Lakes International Cider and Perry Competition.
The GACC awarded two of Fenceline’s hand-crafted ciders, Windfall and Tom Putt, top platinum awards in the French and Heritage Cider Categories, respectively. Fenceline’s Understory Elderberry was also awarded the bronze medal in the Fruit Cider Category.
Fenceline received four awards at the Great Lakes competition, with Windfall winning gold in the Heritage Cider – Sweet category. Three silver medals were awarded for the Seedling (Modern Cider –Dry), Tom Putt (Traditional Cider – Dry) and Spur Bearer (Rosé Cider).
Fenceline’s Windfall Cider is a French-style cider, made with French bittersweet apples grown in Cedaredge, Colorado. The juice is fermented slowly and aged up to one year in French oak casks.
Fenceline’s Tom Putt Cider is a single varietal cider and crafted from an apple that is one of the first to ripen and notoriously difficult to grow – the Tom Putt. With apples sourced from Shawn Carey’s Atomic Orchard, Fenceline’s Tom Putt is distinctive for its beautifully balanced acidity and tannins.
