Sparkling Sweet Bitter Orange Co-Ferment

This fruity cider combines wood oven roasted bitter oranges, fermented as a natural wine with Pilton's naturally sweet keeved cider; back in the marmalade season, Martin caramelised Seville oranges in a masonry oven. They were roasted over ash logs, with juniper berries & branches of fresh bay & rosemary. The softened fruit was then macerated for two weeks, fermented with wild yeasts & matured in Jamaican rum casks, before finally being blended with keeved cider.

Charred spice & sticky marmalade on the nose. Bright citrus acidity & cider tannins play together in the mouth. Luscious bitterness & fruity keeved sweetness are balanced on the long finish. Fermented with wild yeasts. Alc. 4.5% vol.
