bottle cider case

Description

Abel Méthode Cider 2017 – Cider from New Zealand

Made in small quantities from freshly harvested, hand-picked apples and pears, using predominantly heritage varieties that have been grown in Nelson, New Zealand for over 120 years. Varieties used are Cox’s Orange Pippin, Sturmer, Kingston Black, Foxwhelp, Bisquet, Winter Nellis, Winter Cole and others in small amounts.

Full fruit fermentation in stainless steel extracts the true fruit character. Made once per year, aged in stainless steel, the cider undergoes secondary fermentation, like Champagne, in bottle for 12 to 18 months prior to release and is bone dry, resulting in a fine cider that is refreshing and full of flavour. A true artisan cider made exclusively from 100% apples and pears, with no added water, juice concentrates or other fruit. Non-disgorged. This cider has an ageing potential of 5-10 years.

Eden Siren Song 2019 – Cider from Vermont, USA

In Greek mythology the sirens were creatures, half bird and half woman, who lured sailors to destruction by the sweetness of their songs. No less beguiling with its notes of fruit, spice and smoke, this cider may well lure you to a second glass and,  after an illusion of residual sweetness, rather than drowning in the deep of the sea, as the story goes, the depths of your glass will reveal a wonderfully balanced acidity.

Whilst this is the new 2019 release, the 2017 release won Gold Medal at GLINTCAP in Heritage Cider category.

Once Upon A Tree Bacchus Cider Co-Ferment 2018 – Cider from England

This cider co-ferment builds on a passion to raise the profile of cider as a wine alternative and combines winemaking techniques and grape bi-products with cider. Made from 100% not-from-concentrate fruit from a single vintage of Dabinett and dessert apples fermented over Bacchus wine yeast lees and aged on these lees for 9 months.

The style and presentation of the cider is designed to share with family, friends – and food! Complex and aromatic, this range of ciders is a prefect food complement.

Brännland Claim Iscider 2017 – Cider from Sweden

Claim Iscider claims new territory for ice cider. An ice wine made from 100% Swedish apples, concentrated and elevated using the natural winter cold of northern Sweden. A true and original expression of the country, its apples and the family of ciders from which it was born.

White flowers on the nose and juicy, sweet, fresh acidity on the finish. Claim evokes lightness and light, spring and summer, in contrast to the flavours and scents of late autumn and winter apples associated with the company’s traditional ice cider.

Whilst holding true to the Iscider methodology, 100% fresh picked Swedish apples, this selection is a journey of discovery. Isciders traditionally are rich and sweet, naturally produced, however Claim is a revelation. It reveals that delicacy and precision are things of beauty, which show themselves through the apple communicated by fermentation and the application of careful winemaking standards. Whilst this does not conform to the Quebec standards, it does write its own rule book, thus claiming new territory for Iscider.

Tasting Notes

Abel Méthode Cider 2017

Delicious green apple, citrus, sherbet, pear florals, bread and biscuit. Dry, focused and clean with a delicious apple tang, mouth-watering acidity and a delicate yet crunchy tannin finish. Refreshing and long with a precise stream of bubbles à la fine Champagne.

Eden Siren Song 2019

With its nose of stewed apple, golden raisin, fig and walnut, this cider beguiles with notes of fruit, spice and smoke, cradled in an illusion of residual sweetness with the tannins revealing themselves in acidity rather than bitterness. Harvest-pressed and fermented slow and cold, the final curvaceous balance evolved from skilful blending by Eden’s cider team. Another glassful calls!

Once Upon A Tree Bacchus Cider Co-Ferment 2018

Beautifully complex, perfumed aromatics of elderflower and hay that give way to gentle hazelnut, lemon and apricot aromas. Lemon zest and crisp apple initially on the palate, then developing bread-like notes with a clean yet lingering finish with a hint of dried apricot.

The colour of bright pale gold in the glass with delicate petillance / spritz. observable in the glass.

Brännland Claim Iscider 2017

Pale golden, straw-coloured in appearance with a fragrant and aromatic nose with notes of tea, honeysuckle, strawberry & white flowers. Golden kiwi and white grapes on the palate, with pomegranate and rose petals on the long, pleasing juicy finish and a sweet rosé or blush wine character.

Food Pairing

Abel Méthode Cider 2017

Oysters, salmon, pork, cheese, charcuterie, fresh spicy dishes. Serve chilled in a flute or small wine glass.

Eden Siren Song 2019

East Asian dishes such as sushi and Pad Thai or, closer to home, roasted monkfish.

Once Upon A Tree Bacchus Cider Co-Ferment 2018

Pairs wonderfully with mild creamy curries, Moroccan tagine dishes, chicken salads and rich shellfish dishes.  Great with roasted root vegetables, particularly butternut squash.

Brännland Claim Iscider 2017

Claim not only claims new territory for ice-cider, it also claims new food matching territory: from the classic repertoire – apple desserts, gooseberry fool with home-made shortbread, and summer fruit puddings. With cheese – lighter blue cheeses such as Gorgonzola, and soft-medium goats cheese. Alternatively – try with salt, pepper & chilli chicken pieces, paneer tikka, Thai prawns with a banana and cucumber salsa.
