Wilding Cider Peppershells Single Orchard Cider 2021 6.2% 750ml Somerset
Yarlington Mill, Blenheim Orange, Harry Masters Jersey, Tremlett's Bitter and Browns. The varieties that make the blend in this single orchard cider from the eponymously named orchard, Peppershells. It is small but perfectly formed on great soil in Compton Dando. 2021 was the first vintage Beccy and Sam started renting this orchard, and this is a selection using the very best of the fruit that year.
The result is rich and concentrated, with apple fruit, strawberry and spice aromas & good tannic backbone softened by some tarte tatin sweetness.
Drink lightly chilled, not too cold. Great with food. No added sulphur and indigenous yeast.
Fans of orange wines, take note!
