Argus Cidery Apple Bomb - A demi-sec, or slightly sweet, full bodied cider that delivers a blast of fruit and finishes big with a tannic, fruity pucker. This is not a subtle cider, but a fresh apple explosion derived from a collection of fermentation techniques and patience. (ATX)
Argus Cidery Vinho Pearde - A one-of-a-kind Perry achieved utilizing a lagering process, delivering a clean pear palate. With tropical fruit notes on the nose, Vinho Pearde drinks demi-sec with a bit of residual sweetness and is lightly sparkled with a slightly tart finish. (ATX)
