This was made from apples hand picked from the Mother Orchard in the Tamar Valley, and is bottle conditioned after spending 10 months in ex Chardonnay barrels. Aromas of vanilla, oak and pear followed by flavours of juicy melon, white peach and tingling sherbet. Serve cool, but not cold, around 10c. Lovely with seafood.
