Description

Abel Méthode Cider 2017

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.

Pilton In Touch 2019

A fresh and juicy-tasting keeved cider made from bittersweet apples fermented in contact with Pinot Noir grape skins to create upfront fruit flavour with complex, bold tannins. A collaboration with Dunleavy Vineyards, guest blended by Martyn Goodwin-Sharman.

Once Upon A Tree Cabernet Co-Ferment Rosé Cider 2018

Building on a passion to raise the profile of cider as a wine alternative, this cider forms part of a range which combine wine-making techniques and grapes or grape by-products with cider. Made from a single vintage, containing 100% fruit, never from concentrate. The style and presentation of the cider is designed to share with family, friends, and food!

Dabinett apple juice was pressed and incorporated with the red wine skins of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Cortis grapes after fermenting for red wine.

The skins were fermented and left in contact with the cider for over 3 months to extract colour and flavour into the cider.

After pressing and settling, the co-ferment was tirage-bottled for full secondary, in-bottle, fermentation and left to ferment and mature on lees for 9 months before riddling and disgorging.

Brännland Pernilla Perle 2017

Dry with a profile of apple clarity and tannins, with elegance and complexity. The balance between sugar, alcohol and fruit is joined by a length that holds great promise for future development and ageing.

Eden Origins

‘Origins’ is a nod to the shared DNA of apples across time and continents. This cider is made from varieties treasured for their contributions to cider, baking, sauce, and a few for eating out-of-hand.

All the apples for this cider come from small orchards, and consist of historic English and New England varieties.

Blue Aurora Ice

Overview:

The blueberries are substrate grown in buckets under poly tunnels and then picked by hand between July and October.  The blueberries are then frozen once picked and then pressed hard from frozen. The press program takes between 2 ½ to 3 days, releasing more juice as the berries start to defrost. The juice is then fermented in a stainless steel tank for around 4 weeks. After fermentation the wine is racked, filtered and bottled. Each bottle is made up of 2kg of blueberries.

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.

Pilton In Touch 2019

Burnt sugar copper colour. Lightly sparkling, unfiltered and therefore slightly opaque, delicious burnt sugar nose with a deep, intense, inviting, light palate upfront, which shows sweetness and vibrant apple fruit, then reveals a sweeter, yet tannic, dry finish.

Once Upon A Tree Cabernet Co-Ferment Rosé Cider 2018

The style and presentation of the cider is designed to share with family, friends, and food! Spicy, herbal aromas with coriander seed, green peppercorn and tobacco leaf. A sumptuous, mouth filling fizz with rich, spiced apple, blackcurrant and eucalyptus notes, and a long, red berry finish. Off dry, but with soft ripe tannins that linger on the palate.

Brännland Pernilla Perle 2017

Appearance: lightly sparkling, golden hue, crystal clarity. Nose: nectarine, pear, apple blossom, honey, vinous. Palate: pear, ripe apple, lychee, orange, almonds and white cherries. Light lingering structure, slightly grippy. Sweet attack with really juicy fruit flavours, nice acid profile on finish.

Eden Origins

Notes of apple sauce, biscuit and green hay, the apple blend used provides a balance of aromatic fruit character, tannin, acidity, and enough original sugar to achieve sufficient alcohol for body, and of course for pleasure.

The apples used in this cider are: Kingston Black, Roxbury Russet, Esopus Spitzenburg, McIntosh, Dabinett, Yarlington Mill, Northern Spy, Empire, Black Oxford, Blue Pearmain, Rhode Island Greening, and Franklin.

Blue Aurora Ice

Dark berries and red fruits nose with a delicate hint of candied violet and rose petal. The palate is velvety smooth and devilishly pure, with ripe berry notes reminiscent of kirsch or blueberry jam. A refreshing acidity lifts the sweet finish.
