Natural Selection Theory, showcasing Nature, have sculpted an elixir in homage to Venus. For what we have here is our taste of Venus, our potion, our Bryan Ferry of beverages.
And in honour of the Spirit of Venus, we have captured the soul of the most sacred of fruits- the apple and her sister the pear. Both hexagonal, spiritual fruits, coaxed to produce an expression of natural pure beauty- made by the fruit- natural yeast for a wild ferment, pure juice for a natural secondary ferment in the bottle, unfined, unfiltered. Utilising carefully harvested Certified organic apples from Graeme Schultzs legendary orchard, centurion Lemon Bergamots and various pears from the AA Magary orchard, all in the Adelaide Hills, something so far removed from the fruit has emerged, a force has risen from within— impossible some did say, we say no. Salute, to Love!
And on Venus a day lasts a long time, longer than a Venus year, 243 earth days to 225 for the latter. She spins on her axis backwards, unique to herself, alone in the solar system. The brightest body in the early evening heavens, and once again in the breaking dawn sky.
The bringer of good fortune, the Goddess of Nature, the essence of attraction, the mother of Love.
Our world, our God.

I’d normally avoid cider made by winemakers (or brewers for that matter) like the plague, but I’m happy to make an exception for these guys. Close to flat, hazy, scrumpy-style. Excellent retention of fruit character despite a long time on lees, with that distinct flattish softness you get from pears. Very unusual acid profile - quite volatile and a bit acetic but only appears about 3/4 the way through and disappears quickly. Low tannin, and the fruit’s not as concentrated as some of the best. Not as out-there as Thorogoods’ stuff, but not too far off. It’s a lot like Kellybrook Scrumpy actually, but in a shelf-stable package which is probably an achievement in itself.

Bottle. Pours a light straw/. No head to speak of. Quite a lot of sediment near the end of the bottle. Quite lifeless looking in the glass. Nose is somewhat volatile. A little fruit sweetness, plenty of acetone and some acidity. Flavours initially show the sweetness with a retrainied acidity on the tfinish. A little thin and a little one dimensional but interesting all the same.
