Killahora Orchards ‘Johnny Fall Down’ Early Apples Cider 2017 50cl


Republic of Ireland

Description

This 2017 vintage medium dry bittersweet cider is made from 100% juice from Irish apples. The apples are macerated and pressed by hand using wild fermentation with minimal intervention.

As with all Killahora ciders, this is slow fermented at cooler winter temperatures and then matured for between 1 and 2 years to allow a range of flavours to develop from the different stages of fermentation.

As the name suggests, the cider is a blend of early ripening varieties of apples which creates a light, crisp and fruity cider.

A Piece of Irish – and Brand – History: The name Johnny Fall Down is a play on the name of a legendary cider that was made in Cork, called ‘Johnny Jump Up’. The story, which is told in a traditional Irish song, goes that the cider was aged in whiskey barrels from the local Jameson distillery and that this gave it quite a kick! This cider is a lot more refined, but it’s a good story!

 

Tasting Notes

Light amber in colour with a tropical fruit and strawberry nose. It’s aromatic and fruity with those tropical notes on the palate, and a long rosé-like finish that come from light tannins and natural malolactic fermentation.

Food Pairing

Serve lightly chilled as an aperitif. This cider pairs well with pork dishes, barbecued meats and fish, seafood and Thai food.
