Old Man & The Bee 2019

Little Pomona Orchard & Cidery Old Man & The Bee 2019

Regular price £45 , per case



Still Dry Fine Cider

 

This is the smallest release of Old Man & the Bee, & its time in barrel (6 months) marks a departure from previous vintages. The result though is a compelling & thrilling expression of the season, the fruit & the orchard. In the blend is: Dabinett 67%; Harry Masters Jersey 31% & perry pears 2%. 

 

Slightly hazy, orange gold in the glass it is super aromatic – ripe yellow plums, honeysuckle & a touch of vanilla. In the mouth it’s fleshy, super juicy, loaded with apricot, peach & pithy orange fruit. The tannic structure, fine, soft, wet slate in style, holds everything in place perfectly & at the finish there is a subtle salinity which is a feature of the orchard. Versatile but it does love salt, fat and gentle spice. Alc. 7.7% vol.
