Little Pomona - On The Beech - 7.3% Dry Cider - 750ml Bottle
When legendary orchard man and good friend Rob Uren brought us a little over 600kg of White Beech, a rare apple, once prized by the old cidermakers, we were like kids at Christmas!
We pressed these along with some Major, a super-rich, sweet spicy apple, and Browns, all juicy citrus, first into tank but then subsequently moving it into four barrels, a mixture of ex-cognac, white burgundy and chianti, to finish fermentation.
What developed over time was everything we had hoped for. On the nose this is sweet and perfumed, think ripe peach, honey and lemon blossom. On the palate it is gloriously mouth watering, like stuffing fruit gums into your face one after the other
