Wilding Cider - Stoke Red #2

This is the second single orchard Stoke Red Wilding made in 2020, from a beautiful old orchard in Ditcheat, with trees of similar age to Abbot's Leigh. They were picked in the same week as the Abbot's Leigh fruit, and pressed on the same day, then fermented in the same way, racking on the same day each time (Rural Method) before bottling on the same day in the summer. The result is intriguingly different, a lighter colour, with less of the typical rose/strawberry aroma. Instead it has a more savoury, structured character with the same tension in balance of tannin, acid and sugar. Very classy and better with savoury food than sweet. The aromas are of stone fruit, some minerality, a slight herbaceous note
