Henri Michelin Cider 750ml Swing top bottle
Medium Sparkling single variety cider 6% ABV
The cider apple, Michelin, was raised in Normandy in the mid-1800's. it was named after m.Henri Michelin, a noted french pomologist of the time. Michelin became very popular in the uk following its introduction in the 1880's, it has a delicate flavour and is a late ripener. Hasty folk often harvest them before their golden colour and delicate pink blush announce that they are fully ripe, giving Michelin an unfair reputation for blandness. this single variety cider is made from Michelin harvested in January 2019 and then keeved in the traditional Devonshire manner. It has kept some original sweetness but not too sweet, with earthy, oak, lime and cut grass on the nose and a slight resinous edge. Juicy fruit on the palate but with a touch of smoke. Rounded tannins on a finish that just keeps 100%fresh apple juice, no nasty modern flavourings no concentrate. Just fresh pressed cider from going
our own apples fermented and bottled on the farm.
