Harry Masters Jersey
Harry Master's Jersey is a bittersweet apple with an unexpectedly complex aroma. Like the wine grapes we know and recognize, Harry Master's is distinct and identifiable.
This is a rare varietal, recently planted in Ontario but discovered in the early 1900s in Somerset, England.
We made just 12 cases of this zero sulphur, hand disgorged, pét nat cider.
What's it like?: This single varietal cider has distinct candied berry notes—like butterscotch infused with still-ripening blueberries.
There's something melony here as well—in between canteloupe and papaya.
Texturally we love it: low acid paired with apple tannins is always a surprising treat for apples from a cold climate (cold weather usually means high acid, for apples as well as grapes).
Harry Master's Jersey is full of personality: different from your average culinary apple in every way.
The bubbles from bottle fermentation here are fine but aggressive. Harry Master's Jersey is a pét nat that you should chill very well before opening. Treat it with the same care you would opening a bottle Champagne.
