CELEBRATE THE QUEEN’S PLATINUM JUBILEE WITH BRITISH WINES MADE FROM APPLES, PEARS & OTHER FRUITS – HELPING MAKE BRITISH CIDERS GREAT AGAIN!
Ciders, perries and fruit wines are the essence of nature, transformed by the natural process of fermentation, and enhanced by human intervention.
Cider Is Wine celebrates this special event with this carefully chosen case:
Gospel Green Brut 2018
A ground-breaking dry cider produced in Hampshire uses the same production technique as Champagne. Luxurious to savour, with just the right balance of sweetness. The pure and fresh flavour of apple with the double fermentation process adds to its complexity. Cider connoisseurs will adore it.
“Bright with a super-dry zing, perfect to serve in place of a top sparkling wine, or to pour with a cheeseboard for a real treat.” Olly Smith, Wine Expert, Great British Food Awards
The Newt Fine Cyder 2020
The 2020 vintage fine cyder has been made with specially selected dessert apples using precise wine-making techniques and slowly cold fermented in the cellar. The result is a super-fresh elegant cyder.
Tinston Gateway English Sparkling Cider 2019
The ‘Gateway’ to get any wine drinker properly hooked on cider! All of the complexity, elegance and refinement of fine sparkling wine, but with the bold tannic apple qualities of traditional cider. Made in the tradition method like sparkling wine.
Queen Of The Orchard
English cider that’s steeped in our country’s heritage, ingrained in who we are, produced with 100% apples and treated with as much thought and care as with grape wine (from an award-winning wine producer). The approach is of minimal intervention, with the aim of delivering the orchard’s terroir in the bottle using the method most suited to the apple varieties used
Welsh Mountain Redstreak 2020
Made mostly from the lovely, soft, bittersweet Somerset Redstreak apple, complemented by the acidity of the fresh and highly-scented Brown’s apple. This makes for a perfect for early Spring bottling and a pleasant lower in alcohol cider option.
Once Upon A Tree The Wonder Pear Ice Wine 2016
The juice of handpicked, late harvested Conference and Comice Pears is filtered, frozen and gently thawed to allow the sugars, colour and flavour to be extracted, leaving water behind as ice – a process called cryo-concentration – which concentrates the juice to a potential alcohol of 20–22%.
This juice is fermented using champagne yeast to 10 – 12%ABV over 3 to 4 months. At this stage the ferment is stopped and the resulting product is filtered sterile, bottled and further aged in bottle before release.
