The Riddling Process

The riddling process starts today.  It will take around eight days to prepare the cider for the next process which is disgorging. 

2018 Sparkling Cider

We are currently in the process of tasting the 2018 Sparkling Cider which is now on 'lees'.  It's dry and absolutely delicious!!  It's going to need a little dosage.  We will start riddling shortly.  We are setting up the riddling racks ready for the processs! 

Southerly Winds

We had several days of southerly winds and we managed to loose quite a few of our apples as a result.  We are totally in the hands of the weather!
