3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
2011 dated 750ml. clear pale yellow body with seltzer water effervescence. mild generic apple / pear aroma with softer touches of unripe kiwi and lemon meringue pie. substantial calcium carbonate and granite / spring water mineral character; some sea salt / sand notes; soft apple + pear expression but missing any distinct quince note (and me being unfamiliar with quince, which I hear is basically a pear). light body; between dry and semi-dry (not bone-dry as the bottle says); mild unripe apple and pear with suggestions of lemon custard. increasing malic acid in the finish (bitter, astringent, acidic apple skins). it’s not deep or complex and develops no depth over the course of a sip or a glass. well-made but very static.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Vintage 2013. A clear, still cider with a few bubbles on top. Rather low on pears in the aroma, with some cores and grass. Generic fruityness and some faint piney hints. It’s medium bodied, semi-dry and smooth on the palate, with pear, pear cores and grass. Some peel from yellow apples. Far from exciting this one, but tasteful and easy drinkable. Would be nice with some pork chops I think. 150724

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ Home. Hugely effervescent pour. Clear pale straw pour with a massive champagne head. Kind of a tangy, lightly musty nose. Some straw, tart pear and apple, and some lemon zest. A touch of wet stone and straw. This is quite dry and has a nice acidity. A bunch of straw and mineral quality. Sort of fruity, but not overly heavy on the apple or pear. My girlfriend didn’t really like it, but I thought it was nice.
