Little Pomona Col Fondo
A borrowed term from Italy, this is an experiment with the ever amazing Egremont Russet apple. Fermented in both tank and barrel it combines the dry ciders into bottle for a second fermentation, ageing it on the lees and leaving it undisgorged.
On the nose there's Russet apples along with honeydew melon and blossom. It’s a lovely green tinged, slightly hazy yellow colour. In the mouth it has a pillowy sparkle, flavours of kiwi and lime zest and that characteristic spice and slight tanginess of the col fondo method.
Susanna and James Forbes have been making cider since 2017 from their orchard in Thornbury, North Herefordshire. 120 trees with four classic cider apple varieties. Inspired by the tasted and vision of notable producers, their quest was to work with the best possible fruit using natural methods to fashion ciders and perries with true flavours.
