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 single orchard blend from a very special old orchard (at least 150 years) with several generations of trees. Cold racked following the Rural Method to retain sweetness and sparkle - a non-interventionist version of keeving - this is easy going and lovely to drink on it's own. 2021 was an exceptional year for apple quality but gave just a small crop in the Ditcheat Hill orchard. The blend was adjusted for this and has seen the introduction of Dove and Harry Masters Jersey alongside Yarlington Mill, Ashton Brown Jersey, Browns and Sweet Coppin. The mild winter of 21/22 resulted in a drier cider than usual, still sweet but just revealing a little more of the special terroir in this beautiful orchard. A small harvest, around half as much as previous vintages was made.
The 2021 vintage is probably our favourite Ditcheat yet! Balanced sweetness with a lovely tanning that makes for a moreishly satisfying bottle.
