So this is a classic blend of late season bittersweet featuring Yarlington Mill, Dabinett, Sheep’s Nose, Michelin and a host of small amounts of another 40 odd varietals from the Home Orchards. Keeved and bottled with some residual sweetness to condition in a beautifully full and lively way. Bottle conditioned Herefordshire cider as it was always meant to be. This cider is called Service to recognise the incredibly tough times that the hospitality industry has been through and the contribution that all those involved make to the enjoyment of good food and drink.
Chill upright for 24 hours in the fridge. Cork emerges with a good pop and a golden burnished lively liquid and mousse hits the glass. Ripe sweet apple with usual spice and tobacco, drinks with sweetness to the fore and finishes with a clean, drying finish reminiscent of hedgerow blackberry fruit. Full in the mouth and so drinkable.
