MC Cider 2016
A truly indulgent cider. Hand crafted from 100% specific heritage cider apples and traditionally crafted. Milled with some pulp oxidation prior to separation over the rack and cloth press. Naturally settled and clarified before a long, cool ferment through to dryness followed by malolactic ferment before being triaged to bottle for secondary ferment and conditioning.
More than 6 months lees time then disgorged and dosage back with the original apple juice for sweetening.
The deep elegant colour heralds the ensuing weight and richness of this magnificent reserve cider. Complex and tannic, an abundance of traditional style convenes alongside creamy textures throughout, the result of maturing on fermentation lees. Rich, sweet fresh apple characters and perfect natural acid balance. Although leaning towards the dryer cider style.
A lovely round palate with elegant soft edges. Best in Class – Australian Cider Awards 2016
Enjoy on its own or with a wide range of food as a companion.
