Templar's Choice 'St Martin' Single Variety Cider
From their website:
'A mono-varietal cider made from St Martin apples, famous for giving a truly balanced single apple cidre.'
'Our cider apples flourish on our well-drained south facing orchards. The apple trees are 100% traditional cider varieties, some of which are exclusively recommended for our small area, which is famous for producing a very aromatic and deep-flavoured naturally sparkling cider and also excellent Calvados. All our cider is sold in strengthened, corked and wired bottles, a technique developed in the 19th century when the arrival of the railway meant that empty champagne bottles from Paris could be brought down to Normandy by train and refilled with sparkling cider and sent back to Paris together with the world renowned cheeses, Calvados and other dairy products from Pays d'Auge.
We have some wonderful varieties of cider apples including late-ripening ones that we press around Christmas time. All our cider is keeved with the natural apple yeasts and then slowly fermented throughout the winter months. It is bottled in the Spring when a small, secondary fermentation takes place in the bottle to give a naturally sparkling cider. No sugar is added, the sweetness from the apples themselves determines the dry, medium or sweet taste of our cider.
All our orchards are untreated and abound in insects, birds, wildlife, and wildflowers.'
