The Dabinett apple tree was discovered in a hedgerow in Middle Lambrook, mid-Somerset, by Dr William Dabinett. It produces abundant fruit in early November. The juice is full tannin, producing a bittersweet cyder that’s nevertheless soft to the palate. The Newt’s Dabinett cyder is cold- fermented from 100% juice, resulting in a fine quality, well balanced, medium cyder.
The Newt Dabinett 2018 is gluten free and vegetarian and vegan friendly.
Medium amber in colour, this is a cyder with a subtle, smoky aroma, a little like a west coast single malt whisky. It combines a medium bitter mouth feel with a clear taste of apple juice.
Complements grilled vegetables, especially good with aubergine and Mediterranean-style vegetable dishes.
