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.
Once Upon A Tree Bacchus Cider Co-Ferment is gluten free and vegetarian and vegan friendly.
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.
Pairs wonderfully with mild creamy curries, Moroccan tagine dishes, chicken salads and rich shellfish dishes. Great with roasted root vegetables, particularly butternut squash.
