Carrick Gravel Run Cider (Ontario)

Sausage and Cider, what could go better together?  Yes I hear you purist saying that beer is also a perfect accompaniment but we had Cider on hand so that is what we went with.  Smoked garlic sausages from the Best Little Pork Shoppe (Shakespeare, Ontario), served with a side of Sauerkraut (from the same shoppe) and a little Kraft Dinner with extra cheese on the side, to round out the meal.  I had recently acquired some wines from a little winery in Midway, Ontario and I felt the best way to get a taste of their Cider was with a meal.  This Gravel Run Cider is their lightest offering of the Cider varieties (they make two), it's off-dry and slightly carbonated.  Light and crisp with a touch of sweetness this one is very gulpable and with a finish that had some length.  Maybe a little too light to accompany the dinner we had, but on its own it was a delight.
