A class act, this still cider is made from Dabinett apples aged in barrels that come from the prestigious right bank of Bordeaux’s wine-growing area (whilst we’re not allowed to know their precise provenance these are classic St.Emilion or Pomerol puncheons, 500 litre oak casks).
Viscous from ageing in red wine barrels, its rich golden colour is immediately appealing, with a sweet, delicious nose that embraces you with gentle vanilla oak in the background. This rich fruit is maintained through the palate, which caresses with its weight and gentle, sophisticated style.
With an appealing 7.3% alcohol, it’s great to share over lunch. Bottle conditioned with no added sulphates.
