Tasting Notes/Reviews of previous vintages…

2015 Methode Traditionelle #124. Brut. 7.5%vol:

SUSAN MCCRAITH MASTER of WINE "Pale gold, the nose is delicate with hints of peach. This has a champagne feel. Citrus flavours with underlying but delicate apple characters. The sweetness is well balanced. Overall very delicate and quite floral".

2015 Methode Traditionelle #3.Brut Nature. 8%vol:

SIMON TYRRELL, WINE MAKER/BUYER "This is quite simply one of the best ciders I've ever tasted. It has a fantastic nose of baked apples and dried fruits such as apricots and pineapple. On the palate it is quite weighty and has a perfect balance of body sweetness and acidity. The mousse is perfectly judged as it enhances all the flavours rather than detracting from them which is such a difficult thing to achieve from ciders produced using the traditional method.

SUSAN MCCRAITH MASTER of WINE "Pale gold with a brittle mousse. Ripe apples on the nose with some floral notes and hints of mown hay. The mousse on the palate adds a creaminess. Bone dry yet the long finish is of sweet ripe fruit, very clean and refreshing. Very well balanced and a delicious flavour".

2015 Pet Nat #001. 4%vol - earthy and fruity

2015 Pet Nat #003. 4%vol -  tarte-tatin in a glass

 

 

 

Our ciders are influenced by vintage variation, so no two years will taste the same.
