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 is a bone dry, sparkling cider made from Dabinett & Foxwhelp. The Foxwhelp is from a truly extraordinary orchard in Ditcheat, from huge old trees that yielded a very aromatic and concentrated juice. This was co-fermented with the Dabinett in stainless before bottling, ageing on the lees and hand disgorging. Aromas of poached strawberries and peaches combine well with orange flesh, leather and bittersweet notes. Great as an aperitif. Drink lightly chilled, not too cold.
