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.

Gold pour produces a distinctly funky aspirin aroma with light phenolics.. a dry mousey element sticks to my teeth, but I am enamored with a bacon-like finish. There exists a light carbonation with a baking soda tart character. it’ s green with champagney stuff happening despite the lack of fizz. Finishes with an impressive caramel corn undercurrent. Flawed but enjoyable.

Bottle. Golden body, minimal head. Aroma has pure apples. Medium dry taste of apples. Finish has medium tart apple peel. Tastes pretty much like you’d expect a Somerset cider to taste. "11 varieties of vintage cider apples" you say? What’s the point? Sounds like something created by Spinal Tap.

500 ml bottle purchased from Phoenix Wines, Swanage, Dorset. Clear golden body with a fast disappearing white head and lively carbonation. Aroma has ripe apples, apple cores and a hint of wood. Nice fruity, quite dry apple flavor with a hint of wood, yeast and some acidity. Medium body and fruity aftertaste. Pleasant and refreshing.

Bottle 50 cl. Pours a clear yellow with a white head. Fresh, dry, leathery apple aroma. Light body, thin apple juice but very dry with heavy tannins and leathery Brett. Loads of flavours here and the light body makes it very drinkable. 200713
