HOME ORCHARD BLEND 2018 . (Barrel 26/18) was selected.
This is the same Home Orchard, same late season harvest but a couple of years earlier and so in the barrel for 2 extra years and the alcohol is up and the SG way down, so those wild yeasts and their spontaneous fermentation have without any further assistance, gone on a deep dive. The orchard is biennial so the blend of varieties should be comparable. Varieties in the home orchards are Breakwell Seedling, Foxwhelp, Kingston Black, Brown Snout, Yarlington Mill, Bloody Turk, Major, Ball’s Bittersweet and Frederick
Alcohol: 10.1% vol. Nice.
SG .994 Strongly drying in all aspects!
Tasting Notes: A deeper golden colour as befits the 4 years in barrel. The gentle oak envelope is pushed hard by pungent fruit, lifted by the alcohol. The driest of all the BRS but the oak brings a kiss of sweetness and vanilla to this “take no prisoners” cider. Sip and enjoy this liquid apple crumble.
This is ready to drink now.
