This bottle contains a blend of our finest ciders from 2019 and 2020 which have been aged in neutral Irish whisky barrels and allowed to mature in our cellar.  It is our first production of a pure, dry cider made from 100% bittersweet apple juice, wild fermented, unfiltered and allowed to condition naturally in the bottle to a light sparkle.

This is a real expression of our natural terroir and will appeal to those who may enjoy other wild fermented liquids such as lambic beer especially Oude gueze, and natural wines.  The complexity that can come from ciders such as these will undoubtedly surprise and delight those who try it.

Tasting Notes:
Sparkling and pale yellow, cloudiness at finish with natural sediment
Summer apple softness, baked brioche, lots of oak barrel character with subtle hints of aged whiskey and a white pepper finish with some characteristic wild fermented notes.

Serve:
Lightly chilled as a complex sipper or goes with almost any food!

Pairing:
Serve with cooked meats, oily fish or roasted vegetables.   A real food all rounder given its balance of acidity and tannins!

Vintage:
2020

Alcohol:
6.0%
