8 Wired Dry Oaked Sparkling Cider (750ml Bottle)
A tart, dry and oaky cider. Made from new Zealand grown Sturmer Pippin and traditional cider apples. After pressing the fruit on the Zeffer farmhouse, the juice was fermented with wild yeast. To naturally mellow the acids we then let it undertake a 3 month malolactic ferment in oak. Voila! Cider as (we think) it should be. Dry and not back sweetened. Special thanks to Zeffer Brewing Co. for lending us their machinery, brains and manpower. Cheers.
Made from fermented apple juice, cider comes in a number of varieties. English cider is dry, with fruity, tannic qualities and low carbonation. This can be found cask-conditioned in England. Normandy is another major cider-producing region, with a sweeter, more effervescent, very complex style. Ciders produced elsewhere are often sweet, simple beverages for mass consumption, though there are some good English-style ciders in North America and Norman-style ciders in Quebec.
