Summer of Sport Case

bottle cider case

Description

Whatever the sport, this case of 100% juice, not-from-concentrate ciders and fruit wines is a great way to relax just watching or after playing!

Gospel Green Rosé 2017 75cl

A really innovative cider made from a blend of 20% cooking and  80% dessert apples with a dosage of Pinot Noir. Cellar-aged for a minimum of 12 months, this cider uses the same production technique as Champagne – indeed, Gospel Green is the only cidermaker whose ciders are analysed by the IOC in Epernay, in Champagne – and it very much reflects the Gospel Green house style of finesse and subtlety.

Eden Origins 2019 75cl

‘Origins’ is a nod to the shared DNA of apples across time and continents. This cider is made from varieties treasured for their contributions to cider, baking, sauce, and a few for eating out-of-hand. All the apples for this cider come from small orchards, and consist of historic English and New England varieties.

Cidentro Still 2018 75cl

An exclusive dry, still vintage cider from the finest English cider apples using 100% freshly pressed juice, it’s matured for 6 months for flavours to fully develop, giving an elegance of style and depth of character which can be enjoyed in the same way as wine.

Once Upon A Tree Tidnor Wood Oak-Aged Still Cider 2018 75cl

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!

Pilton TEN, Somerset 75cl

Tenth Anniversary dry Somerset keeved* cider made to celebrate 10 years of cider-making. Blended from multiple tanks and barrels for complexity and balance.

*Keeving is an artisan cider-making technique used to create a natural cider without sweetening or pasteurisation. Wild yeasts, cool cellars and low nutrient orchards are all key elements in the process. Only 100% fresh pressed cider apples are used, no sugar, no water, and nothing else.

Blue Aurora Blueberry Ice Wine 37.5cl

It takes 2 kilos of pure blueberries to make one 37.5cl bottle of Blue Aurora ice wine. The blueberries themselves are substrate-grown in buckets under polytunnels and then picked by hand between July and October.  Once picked, they’re frozen and then pressed hard from frozen. The press programme takes between 2 ½ to 3 days, releasing more juice as the berries start to defrost. The juice is then fermented in a stainless steel tank for around 4 weeks. After fermentation the wine is racked, filtered and bottled.

Tasting Notes

Gospel Green Rosé 2017 75cl

The dosage of Pinot Noir creates aromatics of wild strawberry and hedgerow berries with a hint of floral rosehip. A delicate sparkling rosé cider with a touch of baked apple and a smooth, rounded finish.

Eden Origins 75cl

Notes of apple sauce, biscuit and green hay, the apple blend used provides a balance of aromatic fruit character, tannin, acidity, and enough original sugar to achieve sufficient alcohol for body, and of course for pleasure. Fermented using wild and cultured yeasts, then aged and blended, followed by bottle conditioning to produce a classic dry and refreshing cider.

The apples used in this cider are: Kingston Black, Roxbury Russet, Esopus Spitzenburg, McIntosh, Dabinett, Yarlington Mill, Northern Spy, Empire, Black Oxford, Blue Pearmain, Rhode Island Greening, and Franklin.

Cidentro Still 2018 75cl

Yellow gold, vibrant and clear. Aromas of hay, flavours of apple and a winning combination of richness and crisp apple-tartness delivering a lasting finish.

Once Upon A Tree Tidnor Wood Oak-Aged Still Cider 2018 75cl

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.

Pilton TEN, Somerset 75cl

Medium gold colour, sparkling, rich apple dessert nose suggesting something sweet, which the palate then turns on its head to make a dry crisp, nutty-flavoured moderately tannic, firm, long flavour with a twist of bittersharp finish – an ideal food pairing.

Blue Aurora Blueberry Ice Wine 37.5cl

Dark berries and red fruits nose with a delicate hint of candied violet and rose petal. The palate is velvety smooth and devilishly pure, with ripe berry notes reminiscent of kirsch or blueberry jam. A refreshing acidity lifts the sweet finish.

Food Pairing

Gospel Green Rosé 2017 75cl

Goes just as well with both fish and duck as much as with red fruits and desserts.

Eden Origins 75cl

Hors d’oeuvre, steamed shellfish, fish and chips.

Cidentro Still 2018 75cl

Cheese: baked Camembert, English Cheddar, Roquefort Blue. Savoury: wild mushroom Stroganoff, Spanish paella, bacon cheese burger. Sweet: apple tarte tatin, banana bread. Regional speciality: Long Clawson Blue Stilton.

Once Upon A Tree Tidnor Wood Oak-Aged Still Cider 2018 75cl

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!

Pilton TEN, Somerset 75cl

Try with a delicious, medium rare, slightly marbled, aged fillet steak – the ripe, firm tannins sit very comfortably alongside the richness of this steak cut.

Blue Aurora Blueberry Ice Wine 37.5cl

Serve lightly chilled. Pairs perfectly with cheese boards, or alongside a rich chocolate dessert, or enjoy added to sparkling wine as an aperitif, or simply on its own as a fantastic digestif.
