An improvement on its parent Winesap, this old American variety originates from Kansas in the 1850's. It matures late and traditionally was an apple prized for being able to store through the winter. It nice and crunchy and has got an aromatic and distinctive pleasing vinous flavour (VINOUS: meaning it shares in a certain flavour complexity and intrigue like wine has. Does not mean it tastes like an old bottle of wine!)
