ABEL MÉTHODE CIDER 2018

Abel Méthode Cider is 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.

Abel Méthode Cider is gluten free and vegetarian and vegan friendly.

GOSPEL GREEN BRUT 2018

A ground-breaking dry cider produced in Hampshire uses the same production technique as Champagne. Luxurious to savour, with just the right balance of sweetness. The pure and fresh flavour of apple with the double fermentation process adds to its complexity. Cider connoisseurs will adore it.

“Bright with a super-dry zing, perfect to serve in place of a top sparkling wine, or to pour with a cheeseboard for a real treat.” Olly Smith, Wine Expert, Great British Food Awards

Gospel Green Brut is gluten free and vegetarian and vegan friendly.

GOSPEL GREEN ROSÉ 2017

A really innovative cider made from a blend of 20% cooking and  80% dessert apples with a dosage of Pinot Noir. Cellar-aged for a minimum of 12 months, this cider uses the same production technique as Champagne – indeed, Gospel Green is the only cidermaker whose ciders are analysed by the IOC in Epernay, in Champagne – and it very much reflects the Gospel Green house style of finesse and subtlety.

“Gospel Green Rosé is the finest bottle fermented ‘cyder’ in the UK. A very small addition of Pinot Noir is added to the top quality English apple juice and then it is fermented to make an elite fizz. This is one of our country’s greatest drinks!” Matthew Jukes, Daily Mail

ONCE UPON A TREE WILD FLIGHT 2015

Made with 100% Dabinett apple juice fermented entirely with its own wild yeast, firstly in stainless steel tank, then racked off, bottled and aged over 3 years.

KILLAHORA ORCHARDS POIRÉ FINE PERRY 2017

A lightly sparkling wild-fermented perry made mainly from Oldfield, Blakeney Red, Huffcap and Gin pear varieties at Killahora’s cidery near Cork. The fermentation is completed in bottle in a ‘pet-nat’ style (naturally sparkling with less fizziness) to allow the taste of the pears to shine through in their purest form.

Nothing is rushed at Killahora Orchards: the fruit is hand-picked and this perry is made in small batches, then allowed to ferment and mature which creates complexity and real nuances of flavour.

Killahora Orchards Poiré Fine Perry is gluten free and vegetarian and vegan friendly.

WELSH MOUNTAIN BORDERS BITTERSWEET 2017

Made from 100% fresh juice, naturally fermented and cellar aged for between 6 months and two years before bottling, this cider is live and unpasteurised, with no added sulphites. The apples are picked from a mature standard orchard that’s grazed by sheep, but otherwise left to grow wild. Located on the Wales / Shropshire border it contains many varieties that traditionally are grown in this area, including Hereford Redstreak, Bloody Butcher, Morgan sweet and Brown Snout.

These fine old bittersweet varieties combine to make a very complex cider rich and deep in flavour – a truly great expression of our native wine.

Welsh Mountain Borders Bittersweet is gluten free and vegetarian and vegan friendly.

Tasting Notes

ABEL MÉTHODE CIDER 2018

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.

GOSPEL GREEN BRUT 2018

Aromatics of elderflower, brioche and green apples. Crisp with a light acidity and a slight earthiness coming through on the palate. Smooth with a rounded finish and a long-lasting mousse.

GOSPEL GREEN ROSÉ 2017

The dosage of Pinot Noir creates aromatics of wild strawberry and hedgerow berries with a hint of floral rosehip. A delicate sparkling rosé cider with a touch of baked apple and a smooth, rounded finish.

ONCE UPON A TREE WILD FLIGHT 2015

A beautifully mature and rich cider with bittersweet fruit, soft tannins and a gentle fizz.

KILLAHORA ORCHARDS POIRÉ FINE PERRY 2017

Lightly sparkling and pale golden in appearance, it has a nose of pear, apple blossom, and lemon peel. Light, elegant and refreshing on the palate, with soft, moosey bubbles, its taste of citrus and gooseberry has an interesting minerality and a well balanced finish.

WELSH MOUNTAIN BORDERS BITTERSWEET 2017

Pineapple acidity is balanced by the earthy flavours of orchard floor and summer stone fruits, finishing with bitter almonds, tannins and toffee.
