An extraordinary cider. Sparkling and subtle, herbal and wild, this is a traditional Methode Champenoise with no dosage and is absolutely dry. Brut Nature is a spectacular showcase of what cider apples can do. The fruit is an assemblage of foraged apples – from abandoned homestead orchards that Steve, the cider maker, has been pruning for years – mixed with European bittersweet varieties grown in a local orchard planted around 20 years ago. Your first sip will be bright with notes of zesty lemon, crisp apple peel and a light floral aroma. Then earthy notes of mushroom, dill and a hint of brioche emerge, balanced by a crisp minerality. While worthy of a special occasion, this is a bottle that can be drunk anytime – and should be.
