Made from a single vintage, this 100% fresh-pressed fruit, never-from-concentrate cider combines a field blend of bitter sweet apples grown at Tidnor Wood Orchard, part of the original National Collection of cider apples, with dessert apples from Once Upon A Tree’s Dragon Orchard.
Complex and aromatic, the style and presentation of this cider is designed to share with family, friends – and food!
Once Upon A Tree Tidnor Wood Oak-Aged Still Cider is gluten free and vegetarian and vegan friendly.
Aged on its own lees and new French oak for 9 months, this partial wild ferment & unfiltered cider is golden brown with a slight haze. Spice aromas on the nose of clove and vanilla combined with orange peel, honey and lychee. A rich mouth-filling still cider with soft creamy vanilla tannins, and buttery spiced toffee-apple fruit. Bone dry, but ripe, soft and fruity leaving generous tannins to the finish.
Even though this is not sweet, try pairing with Stilton, or other strong, salty blue cheese. Works well with smoky Baba Ghanoush or a Moussaka. Or be classic with roast pork with crackling!
