Still Dry Fine Cider
Old Man & The Bee is the annual homage to the wonderful home orchard at Little Pomona, which with care and attention from James, Susanna and co, produces world class cider fruit. 2020 was a fine season, escaping early frosts, and with a long warm summer and a mild autumn they harvested balanced fruit, with attractive acid and ripe tannins.
The colour of golden syrup, this Old Man & The Bee is super fragrant in an unusual way, all barbecued pineapple and fresh sage. In the mouth it is the Dabinett (two-thirds) that's bringing all the sweet nectarine and clove infused juice to the party, whilst Harry Masters Jersey (one-third) brings the wet slate tannins and Mirabelle plums. The second and third use ex-white Burgundy barrels in which this cider sent 10 months lend spice and subtle vanilla. Alc 7.4%.
