Sandford Orchards Y.D.B. Cider 660ml
This sparkling, triple variety cider is crafted by our friends at Sandford Orchards in the heart of rural Devon.
Expert cidermaker Barny Butterfield, is passionate about protecting Devon’s traditional cider methods. His award-winning ciders use naturally fermented apple juice from orchards within a 30-mile radius of their press in Crediton. Devon Red is a perfectly balanced, refreshing, medium cider named after the rich red soil that gives our orchards their distinctive quality.
Some ciders are best young, other ciders benefit from ageing; by combining vintages Barny and his team of cider makers are able to showcase the best qualities of each. Arrested fermentation leaves natural sweetness from Yarlington, wild fermented layered tannins from 2018’s Dabinett and fresh Browns apple fermented with cultured yeast to white Burgundy method. This lightly sparkling, golden cider has aromas of vanilla and orange blossom. The palate is full of plum and toffee-apple with soft silky tannins which open up to a long raisin and vine fruit finish.
