Peckhams Home Block Cider (500ml Bottle)
Blend #2 2013
Our Home Block ciders are made with 100% cider apple juice, blended to create a full bodied, rounded cider balanced in sugars, acids and tannins. Each blend has similar characteristics, which vary in balance depending on the cider apples used. Deep amber colour with off-dry palate. Rounded and spritzy in the mouth with soft tannins and notable flavour development.
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.
