Sam and Beccy of Wilding Cider grow organic vegetables and make cider near Chew Magna in Somerset. All fruit comes from unsprayed and unfertilised traditional orchards. Naturally, only wild yeasts are used, with no filtering and no additives whatsoever.
This blend uses the very high tannin apple variety Chisel Jersey as a main component. It's fermented in stainless steel and then moved to old red wine barrels to finish fermentation and mature for about 9 months. The result is a serious cider that is bone dry, with bold tannins and notes of spice, orchard floor, orange flesh, leather & old wood.
