A subtly sweet natural cider with hints of mandarin orange and with fine bubbles. Made from 100% handpicked, unsprayed Michelin apples picked and pressed by Paul and Jo at Temple Cider. Bottle fermented using the natural yeasts, this is naturally sparkling (pét nat) and keeved to produce a naturally medium-sweet cider (no sugar or sweetener added), and is an unpasteurised and unfiltered natural cider. This cider was awarded bronze by the IWSC.
The ancient method of keeving is a way to produce a naturally sweet Cider or Perry by causing the fermentation to stop early by starving the yeast of its nutrients. This creates a sweeter, lower alcohol product with a lovely fruity character.
