bottle cider case

Description

Cider Is Wine’s buyers really respect the independent nature of Adam Wells’ reviews in the Malt Review. Our ‘Malt Review’ case consists of 6 ciders you’ll find in our range which have been reviewed by Adam which we’ve turned into a case that we’re sure will surprise and delight wine, cider, perry and fruit wine drinkers alike.

Eden Brut Nature  

‘Brut Nature’ is the champagne classification reserved for sparkling wines with 0% residual sugar. A masterful performance, this naturally sparkling cider showcases rare and complex fruit. It is elegantly balanced with deep apple character, smooth tannins and well integrated acidity. A versatile cider that is an easy accompaniment to almost any meal.

The tannic and heirloom apple varieties are centre stage, enrobed in their own natural carbonation, each bottle has been aged at least 18 months on the lees, then carefully hand-disgorged.

The Newt Yarlington Mill 2019

The Yarlington Mill apple was discovered in 1898 growing from a wall by the mill-race in the village of Yarlington, less than a mile from the grounds of the Newt’s estate. The apples for this Yarlington Mill cyder are sourced within a 3 mile radius, and create a deep, sweet cyder balanced by rich tannins.

Brännland Iscider 2018

The 2018 ice cider vintage is marked by one of the finest Swedish apple harvests of the past decade. The juice at pressing showed unusually high sugar levels without compromising the balance between acidity, sweetness and body that are the hallmarks of the vintage. The spring season fermentations were soft and harmonious and carried through in oak to an even higher degree than previous years.

We believe that Brännland Iscider 2018 has the potential of a classic vintage with exceptional ageing potential.

Queen Of The Brue 2018

A natural fruit wine made exclusively from quince, hand picked in orchards on the banks of the river Brue in Somerset. Sterile filtered, gluten free, vegetarian and vegan friendly.

The Newt Somerset Redstreak 2018

Pressed on October 9th 2018, this cyder was the very first batch created at The Newt’s cydery. The Somerset Redstreak is a bittersweet apple with soft tannin. The cyder is cold- fermented from 100% juice, resulting in a fine quality, well balanced, medium cyder.

Eden Siren Song

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.

Tasting Notes

Eden Brut Nature  

The primary fermentation and aging took place in stainless steel. The secondary fermentation was started in the bottles in June 2017, and the cider rested on its lees in the bottle until disgorged off the yeast, beginning in February, 2018.

Unaccompanied by any dosage, it’s bone dry, yet exhibits an exciting range of fruit character, creamy texture and juicy acidity.

The apples used in this cider are: Kingston Black, Roxbury Russet, Esopus Spitzenburg, Mcintosh, Dabinett, Yarlington Mill, Calville Blanc D’hiver, Hudson’s Golden Gem, Orleans Reinette, Empire, Black Oxford, Blue Pearmain, Rhode Island Greening, Ashmead’s Kernel.

The Newt Yarlington Mill 2019

Dark amber in colour, with aromas of gooseberry, baked apple, and ripe apricot, its natural apple sugars have created a sweet cyder, well-balanced by full tannic astringency.

Brännland Iscider 2018

Appearance: light golden, brilliant clarity. Nose: raspberries, wet stone in spring rain, peach and rose blossom. Palate: glossy soft viscosity, juicy ripe strawberry, watermelon, black cherry and a light finish with touches of honey.

Queen Of The Brue 2018

The quince’s rose-like floral aroma and unique tartness make a truly distinctive, full-flavoured sparkling drink with a long fruity finish.

The Newt Somerset Redstreak 2018

Medium amber in colour with an aroma of elderflower and a mellow and smooth toffee and banana taste.

Eden Siren Song

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!

Food Pairing

Eden Brut Nature  

A balanced and versatile cider to accompany a wide array of foods with gentle harmony, leaving you with a graceful bow.

The Newt Yarlington Mill 2019

A wonderful pairing with the likes of blue cheese (especially a Bath Blue Cheese).

Brännland Iscider 2018

Traditional dessert wine territory: cheese, foie gras, crème brûlée, tarte tatin – but also a good match with savoury food where the refreshing high acidity of the ice cider matches.

Queen Of The Brue 2018

Goes wonderfully well with pâtés, cold meats such as salami, meats such as lamb and pork, and strong cheese.

The Newt Somerset Redstreak 2018

Excellent with barbecued foods – meat, fish and vegetables – and a great accompaniment to lightly spiced dishes.

Eden Siren Song

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