Cider Making Process The Bellarine Peninsula cider company

Step 1

Careful fruit selection and sourcing of a fruit clone and variety to suit each blend. Different varieties produce varying degrees of natural sugars, acids and tannins as well as a broad range of flavour spectrum and colour.

Step 2

Chilled Fruit is firstly pulped then pressed using traditional layered basket and press methods which retains all the healthy goodness of real fruit juice. Similar to wine making a range of yeasts are selected for the cold fermentation process.

Step 3

The final step in the process prior to bottling is stabilisation and clarification to ensure a clean, fresh cider with loads of flavour.

Step 4

Bottled into cool, black 330ml stubbies.
