Tasting Notes

Reflecting the varietal characteristics of the apple, this cider displays intensely lifted, fresh green apple and sherbet aromas.  Apple fruit sweetness and spiced apple caramel notes give way to woody drying tannin and racy acidity.  This results in a complex and concentred cider that will develop in bottle.

Deep golden.  Colour is a result of resting the cider apples between milling and pressing allowing the tannins to oxidise and develop intense colour.


Food matching:

This cider has a robust white wine style and works well matching with food.  One great dish example would be a Crab apple slow braised pork knuckle with kohlrabi and pickled radish salad.

Serve at 6 degrees C.
