Willie Smith's Limited Release French Blend Apple Cider

Maker's Notes: The combination of fourteen, locally grown, traditional French cider apple varieties delivers a complex , medium sweet cider with a dry finish. Made in the French Farmhouse style, this cider displays intense apple, stone fruit and floral aromas balanced with savoury spice and straw notes. Vintage 2016.

Kieran's Notes: Willie Smith's Limited Release range is a chance for Head Cider Maker Tim Jones to experiment, and the results are always superb. Tim started planting traditional cider apples in the Willie Smith's orchard 6 years ago and has been experimenting with the fruit ever since. Only now the trees have reached maturity and Tim is happy with the fruit being produced have ciders started being produced to bring to market.

The French Blend took out Best in Show at the 2016 Australian Cider Awards. It is the second year running that a Willie Smith's Limited Release cider has taken home Best in Show.
