The pick of the local 2021 harvest
Cookers & eaters,
Brisk & breezy,
Chill it a bit,
Goes down so easy!
The local apple harvest of 2021 was a bit of a washout, with only a few hundred kilos being readily scavengable. A lot of these went to add acid to our bittersweet blends but, before doing that, we blended together the absolute best 120 litre barrelful we could from the local fermentations. This was aged a further 12 months to bring out the full depth and nuance of the fruit.
