Wilding were very lucky in 2020 to pick a stunning perry orchard in a neighbouring village, planted in 1911 as a Long Ashton trial orchard. The season was good with excellent sugar levels and fantastic aromas. In this blend they have paired the delicate and gentle Blakeney Red with Yellow Huffcap, a bittersharp with masses of aroma, acid, sugar and texture. The result is extremely drinkable with gentle natural bubbles, and refreshing acidity.
Wilding Cider are orchard cider makers and are based in Chew Magna, North Somerset. They mostly grow Somerset cider apple varieties, in traditional orchards, managing them in a careful organic way. Fruit is picked from the ground, letting the fruit mature and fully ripen before pressing, and then fermented gently and slowly with wild yeasts, no sulphites and plenty of time.
