Tinston Anatomy Sparkling 2017

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.

Once Upon A Tree Bacchus Cider Co-Ferment 2018

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.

Long Brothers Apple & Blueberry Co-Ferment Cider

Long Brothers Apple & Blueberry Co-ferment lightly sparkling cider is a creative combination of Katie apples, grown at Lower Court Farm in Herefordshire, and blueberries which are hand-picked at Lutton Farm in Northamptonshire. The co-ferment is made from 100% fruit juice – 85% apple juice and 15% blueberry juice using no concentrates whatsoever. The contact between the apples and blueberries is very short at only 5 days. After fermentation the cider is allowed to settle for 2 months before filtering and bottling.

Brännland Claim Iscider 2017

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

Tinston Anatomy Sparkling 2017

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.

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.

Long Brothers Apple & Blueberry Co-Ferment Cider

This quintessential English cider is lightly sparkling, with a wonderfully dry, crisp and refreshing taste.

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

Tinston Anatomy Sparkling 2017

Often enjoyed in a flute glass with light canapés, but a great pairing with fresh fish dishes. The bubbles and crisp acidity balance well with the freshness of a simple smoked salmon or some mackerel pâté.

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.

Long Brothers Apple & Blueberry Co-Ferment Cider

Pairs perfectly with a lentil and feta salad, pan seared duck, slow cooked lamb or on its own as a delightful aperitif.

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.
