Plums and petals are two of our favourite things. Like all ingredients we use, both are fleeting. Transient yet punctual in their annual rhythms.
This version of Ostara was aged on Golden Plums for 8 months. To it, we added 100lbs of dandelions that we foraged on our friend's farms, all within 50km of our cidery.
What's it like? It has a shockingly intimate dandelion aroma - like if you made a pillow out of dandelions and stuck your face in it, this is what it would smell like (we imagine).
Bright plant acids are tempered by a subtle sweetness and texture imparted by the pollen. This vintage you'll find an additional herbal depth, and slight tannin from the flowers.
Spontaneously fermented with our native microflora.
