Kinglet Bitter is one of AEppelTreow’s ‘estate’ ciders. It’s all grown at Brightonwoods, within sight of the Winery. It’s more subtle and complex than Barn Swallow – being fermented from 100% bitter English and French cider apples. It differs from an authentic European cider by being ‘immature’. Kinglet has very little post-ferment changes made by wild Lactic Acid Bacteria. Instead, it is fermented with a Sangiovese yeast that really brings out the tannin characters of the cider-specific cultivars. These apples are rare, and not easy to grow.
