Life just doesn’t seem to be able to keep up with our minds. It’s a good problem to have and we sure do appreciate the loyal von Stiehl fans that wait patiently to see if our ideas make it to shelves. We tallied up this year’s new releases and the number┬ácame up to 7 offerings. Some are ready to drink, but waiting patiently in the bottle, like the ’12 barrel select Cabernet Sauvignon. Others are still aging in barrels, like our Apple Bounce.

Then there are the future businesses. The wine tunnel bacaro is intended to be the pit stop for the future emporium right above the still. It all barely makes sense. So for now, lets’ focus on what already exists.

It just so happens that a lot of slow-moving wines are about to come up for sale shortly. Cue the whole point of this article…

Next up is our Schmiling Brothers-branded Bourbon Barrel-Aged Hard Apple Cider. See, it takes a half a sentence just for some of these names! This Bourbon cider version will surface shortly after the new Hard Apple Cider is released, which should finally be by May 1.

What’s in a Bourbon Barrel-Aged Hard Apple Cider, we ask on your behalf? It’s a brandy-fortified blend of five varieties of Hillside Orchard apples. Aromas of almonds and vanilla beans from six months of bourbon barrel aging are complimented by the heat of apple brandy which adds extra warmth and depth.

We’d like to offer a special event to commemorate this release, but seem to be preoccupied with the steer that we are about to roast. So, it’s just going to show up on the tasting bar one day soon. Be sure to ask about it on your next trip to Algoma. Let us know what you think. Then let’s talk about the Sparkling Viognier & Chenin Blanc blend on the horizon.
