COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Avaialable in 500ml bottles. A sparkling medium dry cider made from a blend of 11 apples. Previously 6.5%.
NOTE: Not to be confused with the various "Farm Pressed" ciders (which may be semi-sparkling) sold in 1 litre glass flagons or with the still cider sold only on draught or in plastic containers drawn from the barrel.

Made with a blend of at least 11 varieties of vintage cider apples.
The ancient craft of blending vintage Somerset cider apples to produce fine ciders has been handed down through generations. In our orchards we grow 40 varieties oon more than 7,000 apple trees. In the autumn the fruit is harvested, blended and pressed. The juice is then fermented and matured in oak vats.

Ernest (6542) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially very small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is medium to dark yellow. Aroma is lightly yeasty (barnyard), notes of apple, plastic, light note of ammonia. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly unclean. Medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation, moderately to heavily astringent. A somewhat funky cider, but alas the plastic phenol is not a pleasant band-aid type...it’s more like a plastic bag, little bit of ammonia in there as well. Aftertaste is a little dirty as well, as might be expected from the nose, but the balance is good. Tannins are a bit harsh, unfortunately. Overall pretty rough and clumsy.

chriso (7482) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2011
500ml bottle at home on 19 June 2011, best before May 2009. Clear old gold colour. Slight prickle but not exactly sparkling - maybe the sparkle has faded with age. Otherwise fairly sprightly. Plenty of fruit in the aroma. A little rubbery edge on the nose. Fruity with moderate tannin on the palate. Some sweetness. Tasty and pleasant without being too demanding.
