A single orchard blend of Yarlington Mill, Blenheim Orange, Tremlett's Bitter, Harry Masters Jersey and Browns, the orchard (Peppershells!) is a new one to the Wilding stable. The resulting cider is intensely rich and concentrated, with cooked fruit and spice aromas and a great tannic backbone. Great with cheeses, both creamy bold blue cheeses and mature hard cheeses, like a good mature Cheddar and it also works with meat especially if served with a fruity sauce or condiment.
Wilding Cider are orchard cider makers and are based in Chew Magna, North Somerset. They mostly grow Somerset cider apple varieties, in traditional orchards, managing them in a careful organic way. Fruit is picked from the ground, letting the fruit mature and fully ripen before pressing, and then fermented gently and slowly with wild yeasts, no sulphites and plenty of time.
