Sparrow & Vine Heritage Apfelwein 202210023
We’ve become a little obsessed with cider. We think of it as apple wine (or ‘Apfelwein’, as the Germans call it). Apples have sugar, acid and tannin. And taste delicious. Just like grapes. This parcel blends the bittersharp variety, Stoke Red with dessert variety, Gala. Both from an orchard in Orange, NSW. These were crushed, fermented on pulp, basket-pressed and naturally fermented in Marrickville, Sydney. No filtering or fining or any sulphur additions, we wanted rich colour and texture.
