This is Little Pomonas take on a Col Fondo, a term used in traditional prosecco making, where a second fermentation takes place in the bottle and the drink is left undiscorged for a cloudy style. 100% Egremont Russet apples were used for this.
Although James & Susanna typically ferment naturally, on a rare occation some added yeast is needed, as was the case here.
Progressive and experimental cider-makers James and Susanna Forbes have become an essential part of the resurgent interest in fine cider & perry. Inspired by wine-making techniques, using natural techniques and caring for their environment, they were named ‘2019 Cider Producer of the Year’ by the Hereford Times. They make ciders & perries with character & structure that go especially well alongside a meal.
