Semi-Dry Sparkling Cider 'Darling Creek' [2020]

Semi-Dry Sparkling Cider 'Darling Creek' [2020], Eve's Cidery

We decided to take a softer approach with this softer Darling Creek. Instead of following the traditional method, we bottled it before primary fermentation had finished, pet-nat style. The flavor-dense apples grown in our organically-farmed orchard have very little nitrogen which resulted in a very slow, sluggish fermentation that produced tiny, creamy bubbles and left residual sugar at disgorging. With significant amounts of bittersweet Somerset Redstreak and bittersharp Krys, this generous cider is backed by juicy acidity and abundant tannin which gives it solid structure and a lingering finish. Spontaneous (partial) primary fermentation in stainless steel. Fermentation finished in bottle. Hand-disgorged. 19.8g/L RS. 215 cases produced.
