  2. Willie Smiths Heritage Blend Cider 750ml
    Willie Smiths Heritage Blend Cider 750ml
    Situated on 115 acres, Wille Smiths is 30 minutes south of Hobart in the Huon Valley, a once thriving apple-growing region that exported apples all over the globe and earned Tasmania the title of the 'Apple Isle'.

    Our farm went organic in 1997, thanks to the innovation of current orchardist, Andrew Smith. It was a bold move, transforming the orchard to organic, and involved a lot of new techniques and training to achieve. With a new focus on organic farming and the use of the apples in our cider, they hope to bring back the glory of the 'Apple Isle' days once more.

    The cidery is located at the  orchard, meaning the fruit travels the smallest distance possible from tree to bottle. It's a full circle process which all occurs in one place, right here on the farm.

    Be in no doubt, this is one of the countries of not the worlds greatest ciders. Bold statement for sure but we think you will agree once you try it. This used to be called the French Blend but the various type of apples have moved it away from a predominantly French blend so they have changed the name. This is a seasonal release and one we are looking forward too. If you have never tried these we cannot recommend them enough - so bloody delicious!

  4. Eric Bordelet Mistelle de Poires a Poire 2010 500ml
    Eric Bordelet Mistelle de Poires a Poire 2010 500ml
    Made from partially fermented pear juice, pear calvados is added to halt fermentation and fortify the wine. It has been aged in barrel for 10 years.  This liquid phenomenon has flavours of honey and hazelnuts centred around an electric core of perfectly ripe pears. From barrel aging, it has picked up savoury rancio notes of fresh leather and spice. It's an incredible dessert wine with a superb umami twist on the finish. It's very special and one of a kind.

  5. Eric Bordelet Poire Granit Pear Cider 2021 750ml
    Eric Bordelet Poire Granit Pear Cider 2021 750ml
    Known more as a cutting-edge cider maker, Eric Bordelet was a top sommelier at Arpege in Paris, before returning home to Normandy in 1992 to take over the family business. He biodynamically grows more than 20 apple varieties and 15 pear varieties. JASON WILSON, Vinous

    Eric Bordelet approaches Cider-making with the same intensity as a passionate oenologist brings to winemaking. Bordelet worked as sommelier in the leading 3 star Parisian restaurant, ‘Arpege’ where he became deeply familiar with the top winemakers and wineries of France. In 1992 he took over the tiny patch of family farmed orchards in Charchigné, in the heart of Normandy’s premium Cider producing area. Since then he has set about rescuing the ancient ‘heirloom’ varieties of pears and apples that produce tiny quantities and amazing flavour.

    Produced from pear trees estimated to be about 300 years old. Poiré Granit has 25-80 grams of sugar per liter, yet it doesn't taste particularly sweet.  This is due to the tannin and acidity, which Bordelet says is twice as high as the apple! Stunning as aperitif or with cheese or desserts. With just 4% alc/vol this can be enjoyed any time. Cider simply doesn't get better than this !!

  6. Pomarina Asturian Sidra 2019
    Pomarina Asturian Sidra 2019

    Pomarina takes its name from the Latin word for apple; Poma. In autumn, organically-grown apples are carefully selected and harvested from El Gaitero's own orchards and local growers, which are regulated under the PDO Sidra de Asturias

    Golden with straw/yellow hue. It's floral, skinsy, deep and open in style. There are sweet, nutty, savoury and bitter elements. Abundant small bubbles add to the skin richness, mouthfeel and weight. The freshness of air-dried-apple granola in the cool of morning jostles with the perfume heft of a muggy wheat field after rain. Skins, then seeds and later, a touch of apple core bitterness gives rim to a mouthfeel of brilliant balance, which holds beautifully and releases with a delicate acetic rinse. Apple poetry!

  7. Willie Smiths Kingston Black Cider 750ml
    Willie Smiths Kingston Black Cider 750ml

    Once known as the ‘Black Taunton’, this apple was cultivated in Taunton, Somerset to produce cider & has built a huge following and reputation throughout English and global cider making.

    It is a tricky tree to nurture at times, but rewards the orchardist well once it is pressed into juice, providing a golden tangerine hue. A fresh and vibrant nose shows characters of stainless steel, lemon zest and apple blossom.

    The taste breathes life unto your palate, racy acidity is balanced with sweetness bringing flavours of sherbet, crisp-fresh apple and butterscotch. Tannin adds weight and length that makes the Kingston Black rich, complex yet approachable.
