THE PRODUCTS WE’LL BE TASTING ARE:

Templar’s Choice Vintage 2016

Overview: Produced from freshly pressed apple juice using the apples own yeasts for a slow fermentation throughout the winter months and then bottled at the right degree of specific gravity for its taste style. The fermentation is controlled by keeving, a little racking, together with the quality of fruit to achieve a well controlled secondary fermentation in the bottle to provide a natural effervescence after 6-8 weeks. There is very little deposit, so the clear cider is neither filtered or pasteurised and will keep for many years in the bottle.

Riestra Ice Cider (Sidra De Hielo)

Overview: A new 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.

Berryland Perry Brut 2019

Overview: The pears for this perry were sourced from chemical-free, company-owned orchards close to Makarisvska Buda, near the Ukrainian capital of Kiev. Made just once a year, like all Berryland products, from 100% fruit without the use of any concentrates, this perry shows great balance and the lower alcohol that are hallmarks of the company’s products.

Tasting Notes

Templar’s Choice Vintage 2016

Made by the Normandy ‘méthode traditionelle’, this naturally sparkling 2016 vintage brut uses Domaine, Mettais, Bisquet & Raimbault cider apple varieties to produce a well-balanced all with genuine cider apple tannins to give it body, structure & depth.

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.
