Tom Oliver's Pet Nat Season 2018
REGION Herefordshire, England
STYLE Medium Dry Sparkling Cider / Pet Nat
Mineraly - Spice - Ripe Red Apples
A wonderful slatey, mineral fruity nose that opens up over time. Some spice and leather both on the nose and in the taste. Full bloodied ripe red apples and touches of green apple as well.
Oliver's make a selection of fine Herefordshire ciders and perries with an emphasis on "balance" and "character" coupled with "drinkability".
Based around the spontaneous ferment of selected varieties of cider apple and perry pear from fruit grown in Herefordshire and the surrounding 3 Counties orchards.
Nominally referred to as "minimal intervention", they strive to "take what the fruit gives", respecting the great heritage and traditions of the past but with an eye to innovating for the future. What that really means is they mill and press great fruit, expose the juice to marauding and hungry wild yeasts and then for their part blend and bottle the resulting ferments.
All the while respecting the health, safety and well being of our customers, consumers, employees, the earth's natural resources and the environment
