Non Alcoholic Sparkling Apple
This fresh, fruity non-alcoholic sparkling apple is a huge favourite at our cellar-door for kids and adults alike. We have chosen to use 100% Victorian grown pink lady apples to create this non-alcoholic alternative.
100% fresh juice. No concentrate, no added sugar. 100% natural.
This lower alcohol alternative was a creation born through the demand at our cellar door for a drink that the drivers could enjoy. The use of heritage cider apples in this blend result in a cider with pleasant soft tannins, a medium palate and lovely finish. This is a gently carbonated cider, and would be a beautiful accompaniment to lunch on a hot summer’s day.
‘arf ‘n ‘arf
‘arf ‘n ‘arf is a great example of one of our more traditional style craft ciders, foremost because it is un-carbonated and made in a similar manner to wine. A very well rounded cider with great balance of astringency, fruitiness and acidity. A perfect accompaniment to a ploughman’s lunch or a decent cheese. ‘arf ‘n ‘arf has received a Silver medal at the Australian Cider Awards 4 years in a row, now that’s consistent!
This is a traditional still cider (un-carbonated).
Vintage Dry has been a long standing favourite cider over the years. This cider is not quite bone-dry, with good tannins and acid, nicely backed up with tight carbonation to offer a thirst quenching finish. Beautiful golden hues echo the quality cider apples used in this blend.
Named after one of the sweetest cider apples in the organic orchard, this full bodied cider is fruit driven and bold with delicious aromas of freshly picked apples.
Once in the glass, it’s golden hues shine through and its refreshing fizz makes it dangerously easy to drink – good luck limiting yourself to just one!
Based on the popularity of our on-tap cider, we have bottled up this delicious blend for you all to enjoy with your mates, anywhere, whatever the occasion. A well balanced cider achieved by combining tannin driven, complex heritage cider apples with sweeter table fruit. This cider’s tight carbonation and refreshing finish certainly makes it all too easy to enjoy!
This cider’s blend picked up Gold and Best Cider In Show at the 2020 Royal Adelaide Show.
Easy Going Ale
Daylesford Cider have teamed up with local legends Holgate Brewhouse to bring you this easy drinking, light in style Pale Ale. This brew has a soft hop bitterness along with notes of citrus & stone fruit from all-Australian hop varieties.
This cider was fermented using the naturally occurring yeast strains on the skin of the apple, then aged for a couple months with oak. Expect a full bodied cider with good length & tannin structure enhanced by the oak characteristics. This cider finishes medium to dry and is an excellent accompaniment to food.
Spiced Apple (non-alcoholic)
This non-alcoholic version of our Spiced Cider is a delicious winter warmer that can be enjoyed any time of the day, or with the kids… if they’re lucky!
Stewed with cinnamon, honey, nutmeg & cloves, and best served warm in a mug with a cinnamon quill and wedge of orange.
To heat, warm gently on the stove, avoiding boiling.
For an added alcoholic twist, try adding a shot of Cointreau.
This wonderful winter warmer is a delicious concoction of Daylesford Cider, local honey and a blend of spices. Imagine Christmas bottled up!!
A glass of Spiced Cider makes for a beautiful accompaniment to dessert, or heat it up and enjoy in front of a log fire to warm the belly and the soul.
To heat, warm gently on the stove, avoiding boiling and serve with a cinnamon stick and slice of orange.
Organic Brut Cider* coming soon!
This delicately carbonated thirst-quenching dry cider is the perfect addition to any occasion and would be a great alternative to sparkling wine.
The tannin driven heritage fruit gives length and complexity, while the acidity from the bitter-sharp apples makes for a crisp, clean finish.
Delicious on it’s own – perhaps as a toast at that special occasion, however would equally pair well with seafood, lighter dishes & canapes.
You just never know where the experiments in the cider shed will lead, and that is half the fun! Initially a very limited release to pop at our cellar-door over Summer, however we have been persuaded otherwise, and will keep this as a year-round staple!
It’s floral nose, subtle watermelon notes, delicate bubble and pretty rose colour all shine through, with a medium finish that leaves your palate refreshed.
2020 saw an abundance of Yarlington Mill apples, a bitter-sweet variety that is famous in the apple growing regions of Somerset & Devonshire. This is a medium-dry cider with soft, pleasant tannins and slight bitterness that you would expect from this apple. The stunning golden hues of this cider come from the skin colour of the apple, and really beckons to be poured into a champagne glass and enjoyed as an aperitivo before dinner.
This single varietal cider is based on the heritage cider apple; Bulmer’s Norman. This cider apple is one of our favourite, and certainly brings fantastic depth, tannins and structure to this drink. The cider is close to bone dry, so expect a dry robust finish. A delicious alternative to a light red wine with dinner, excellent with slightly fattier dishes, but just as wonderful on its own, served around 5’c.
This fully fermented, dry cider matured in second year old Pinot Noir wine barrels for 8 months. It developed complex tannins, hints of oak and a palate that pairs beautifully with salty rich food.
This cider is un-carbonated & unfiltered, poured straight into the bottle from the barrel. This is not your commercial style cider, so keep an open mind! Drink and enjoy like a wine.
