Easter Case #2


Description

Abel Méthode 2018 50cl

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

 Cidentro Rosé 2018 75cl

Inspired by Provence-style rosés , Cidentro’s rosé is an exciting cider made from 100% English apples with a dosage of Pinot Noir wine to create a dry and lightly sparkling rosé cider that’s ideal as an aperitif or paired with food. 

Tinston Anatomy Sparkling 2017 75cl

Made from 100% freshly-pressed Bramley apple juice. After a primary alcoholic fermentation, it’s left on its natural yeast lees to develop body and complexity, after which it’s naturally settled and minimally filtered. After bottling, it undergoes a secondary fermentation that creates the natural fizz. However, the real magic is the in-bottle on-the-lees ageing which Anatomy undergoes for 12 to 24 months. The  length of ageing adds layers of complexity and flavour to create a true stand-out cider with a style that’s akin to a top quality champagne grape wine. 

Eden Siren Song 75cl

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. 

Once Upon A Tree Tidnor Wood Oak-Aged Still Cider 2018 75cl

Made from a single vintage, this 100% fresh-pressed fruit, never-from-concentrate cider combines a field blend of bitter sweet apples grown at Tidnor Wood Orchard, part of the original National Collection of cider apples, with dessert apples from Once Upon A Tree’s Dragon Orchard.

Complex and aromatic, the style and presentation of this cider is designed to share with family, friends – and food!

Brännland Claim Iscider 2017 37.5cl

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.

Tasting Notes

Abel Méthode 2018 50cl

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. 

Cidentro Rosé 2018 75cl

Light spritz, a scattering of bubbles float over a sea of rustic pink. Delicate aromas of marshmallow and a hint of vanilla, delivering a full flavour bursting on the palate with undertones of a barely-there sweetness.

Tinston Anatomy Sparkling 2017 75cl

Bright, fresh, yet delicate, crisp English apple flavours that you’d expect from a well-crafted cider. It also comes with an elegant mousse to match with the yeasty, bready, biscuity and buttery notes long from ageing in-bottle on the yeast lees. Many have described this cider as apple champagne. 

Eden Siren Song 75cl

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 Tidnor Wood Oak-Aged Still Cider 2018 75cl

Aged on its own lees and new French oak for 9 months, this partial wild ferment & unfiltered cider is golden brown with a slight haze. Spice aromas on the nose of clove and vanilla combined with orange peel, honey and lychee. A rich mouth-filling still cider with soft creamy vanilla tannins, and buttery spiced toffee-apple fruit.  Bone dry, but ripe, soft and fruity leaving generous tannins to the finish.

Brännland Claim Iscider 2017 37.5cl

Eden Siren Song 75cl

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

Once Upon A Tree Tidnor Wood Oak-Aged Still Cider 2018 75cl

Even though this is not sweet, try pairing with Stilton, or other strong, salty blue cheese.  Works well with smoky Baba Ghanoush or a Moussaka. Or be classic with roast pork with crackling!
