Pouring the bottle, you get a very dark gold liquid, with the aroma of dry apples and autumn leaves. This is a still cider so pours without any bubbles. It is really still. Like Dead. But put it to your lips and the taste explodes in the mouth of vintage apples and plums, more a mix of cider and port, and still the taste continues to grow. Wow! Being still, your tongue seeks out the bubbles that are not there and just finds acres of fruit; young apples freshness, dry apple body. The finish is long and dry and oh so satisfying.
To say this is a cider is to say Leonardo was a painter. Technically true but misses the point by miles. This is probably one of the best expressions of the art of cider making you will ever taste.
The year on the cider indicates that it has been made from a single harvest of a variety of local apples.
Serve lightly chilled (as it says on the label) and enjoy it on its own. You will be totally pleasured.
