Sam Nightingale, is the inspiration behind Little Pomona's first cider made from Egremont Russet. They took perfect fruit and pressed it straight into a white Burgundy barrel. They thought long and hard about yeast, and carefully selected a strain of cultured yeast rather than going wild. Once through its ferment, they tasted and tasted and when they thought the time right, bottled straight from barrel, unfiltered and with no SO2. Simple techniques, complex outcome. It’s aromatic and fruity on the nose, the nuttiness of the Russet coming through. In the mouth it’s soft and creamy, with vanilla, melon, kiwi, lime blossom and fennel and it ends with a lovely white pepper note, reminiscent of Austria’s dry Grüner Veltliners.
