A softer approach was taken with this vintage of Darling Creek. Instead of following the traditional method, the cider was bottled before primary fermentation had finished, pét-nat style. The flavour dense apples grown in the organically-farmed orchard have very little nitrogen which resulted in a very slow, sluggish fermentation that produced tiny, creamy bubbles and left residual sugar at disgorging. With a significant amount of bittersweet Somerset Redstreak and bittersharp Krys, this generous cider is backed by juicy acidity and abundant tannin which gives it solid structure and a lingering finish.
