Ross-on-Wye 'Stoke Red' 2019 750ml
Made from Stoke Red 'bittersharp' apples of a single tree this is an unusual, but delicious, example of a Ross-on-Wye cider. Unlike the majority of their output this has noticable residual sugar due the the early 'halting' of fermentation (nature only knows why) and the result is not only residual sugar but also a minimal sparkle and low ABV (4%).
It pours pale amber in the glass with a subtle haze. On the nose there is sweet rich apple and pastry and this is also present on the palate but the sweetness is balanced by a crisp acididty and medium, astringent tannins. This cider screams APPLE in a way that many ciders simply don't.
