AITA Mountain Berry: The summer berry production in New Hampshire is a small but joyous window in mid-summer. The ripening of these small fruits is received with huge appreciation from the forest critters. Red Raspberry, aptly named Honeyberry and Aronia berry are among the bunch of sought-after gems. These low hanging plumps are a burst of flavor. Such as the Aronia berry, or chokeberry, is known for its astringency, which aids in providing a tartness to the otherwise syrupy trifecta.
Flavor Profile: The nose is like freshly macerated red raspberry jam, just starting to warm on a stovetop. The bright acidity and slight seediness is glazed over by the more syrupy honeyberry. This nose evolves from lively and peaked into a more mature elderberry aroma. The addition of chokeberries really rounds what could have been the overly saccharine summer berry duo. The mouthfeel is closer to port or even a slight tannic kick of Italian Sweet Red wine. The midpalate has more of a gripping sensation than what you might expect from a berry only infusion. Oak and acidity engage more of the taste buds, breaking up any simplistic understanding of any given berry. The finish has a wisp of stone fruit or black cherry.
