ABOUT THE CIDER 
This is the melding of cider with traditional winemaking techniques. Clarified juice is completely fermented to dryness in the primary fermentation.
The wine then has a liqueur added for a secondary fermentation in bottle – Traditional bottle fermented style.
This vintage has had 3 ½ years ageing on yeast lees. It is riddled, disgorged and a liqueur added ready for final consumption.
APPEARANCE 
Golden Straw coloured
AROMA 
As well as a fruity apple aroma, toasty yeast and baked apple characters have developed with the bottle ageing.
AS YOU TASTE IT
With a higher alcohol and the bottle ageing this is a more complex cider. It is elegant and refined on the palate like sparkling wine but a little lighter with some fruity notes.
The ageing of the cider has given some baked notes and the yeasty creamy mouthfeel is satisfying.
The finish is clean and crisp.
The final sugar level is low but enough to enhance the fruit.
SESSION SUGGESTIONS
A special occasion cider.
One for a cider lover or an adventurous wine
drinker.
