Riddling (Continued)

Ready to go!  Riddling starts today... twice a day we move the bottles approximately 25% to ensure the yeast is in the neck of the bottles.  The next stage will be disgorging.

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!
