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.

Berryland Apple and Cabernet Franc Apple Co-Ferment 2020

The skills of the winemaker are apparent in this interesting, vibrant-colour cider co-ferment that marries apple fruit with the Cabernet Franc grape. Made just once a year, like all Berryland products, from 100% juice without the use of any concentrates, this cider shows great balance and the lower alcohol that are hallmarks of the company’s products.

Riestra Ice Cider (Sidra De Hielo)

Another step in Riestra’s century old history was to make this succulent ice cider by freezing the juice of carefully selected Asturian apples using cryo-concentration. Riestra start with apple varieties which combine the right balance of tartness, bitterness and sweetness with the resulting must frozen and defrosted to concentrate the juice and all its flavour, then it’s  fermented for 9 months in oak barrels.

Templar’s Choice Perry

Naturally sparkling, pure juice from perry pears from 80 year-old trees, picked and pressed in mid-to-late October, the juice is keeved* and slowly fermented throughout the winter months for bottling in the spring. The Normandy ‘methode traditionelle’ gives a natural in-bottle sparkle after 6 -8 weeks. The perry is not filtered, pasteurised or sweetened, just bottled at the right specific gravity to give a very clear, rounded and balanced perry that’s rich and deep in flavour. This perry will keep for many years in the bottle and is quite celebratory!

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.

Blue Aurora Dusk Blueberry Wine

The blueberries for this wine are substrate-grown in buckets under polytunnels and then picked by hand between July and October. 1.5 kilos of blueberries go into making each bottle and the blueberries are gently pressed and then the free run juice is fermented in a stainless steel tank for around 6 weeks. After fermentation the wine is racked, filtered and bottled.100% not-from-concentrate blueberry juice.

Tasting Notes

Welsh Mountain Redstreak 2020

A nose of vanilla rum sweetness with notes of apricot, juniper, jasmine and cedar. Pressed in 2020 and bottled young to allow the residual sugar to ferment in the bottle to create a light effervescence. The acidity from the Brown’s apple and the light natural carbonation complement the soft tannins of the Somerset Redstreak to create a beautifully balanced cider

Berryland Apple and Cabernet Franc Apple Co-Ferment 2020

Lightly sparkling with a colour of vibrant, effervescent purple red and a delightful nose that hints at fresh currants, the palate shows sweet fruit upfront, yet turns this round to finish dry.

Riestra Ice Cider (Sidra De Hielo)

Powerful acidity and sweetness in perfect balance. Strongly copper coloured, intensely fruity and aromatic, with notes of roasted apple and yeasty apple compote, the sweet entry on the palate gives way to pleasant acidity.

Templar’s Choice Perry

The smooth and aromatic depths of this pale gold drink are enhanced by its natural effervescence.

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.

Blue Aurora Dusk Blueberry Wine

Hedgerow mulberry & blackberry on the nose, with a delicate hint of violet and rosemary. The palate is fresh, clean and bright and full of dark berries with a crisp acidity balancing the slight residual sweetness and a subtle herbal aftertaste. The finish is long, lingering and flavourful, with a small kick of tannins.

Food Pairing

Welsh Mountain Redstreak 2020

Pairs easily with most foods: great with a BBQ, roast or stir fry, its acidity and sparkle also nicely cuts through heavier dishes.

Berryland Apple and Cabernet Franc Apple Co-Ferment 2020

Dry-cure gammon steak or roast duck with a delicate orange glaze.

Riestra Ice Cider (Sidra De Hielo)

Blue cheese, nuts, dried fruit, pâtés such as foie gras, or creamy or cake desserts – crème brûlée, cheese cake, bread pudding, almond cake, fruit and nut tarts – tarte tatin, pear tart, walnut torte, or anything with salted caramel sauce.

Templar’s Choice Perry

Goes very well with fish and seafood dishes, as well as chicken dishes – in fact it’s a great  alternative to a medium-dry white wine. A small glassful used in the cooking enhances many dishes with the bottle then served with the meal. It also pairs exceptionally well with chocolate or citrus-based desserts.

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.

Blue Aurora Dusk Blueberry Wine

Pairs perfectly with antipasti, tapas, slow-cooked lamb or a rich chocolate dessert.
