Artistraw Cider Woodseaves Oak Apples 2019 is a naturally sparkling, medium-dry, pure juice Herefordshire Cider. Made from a blend of handpicked fruit from a traditional orchard, it has been wild fermented and finished in the bottle pet nat style, light and refreshing, reflecting the earlier styles of Herefordshire Cider.
The orchard is just a pip's throw away from the famed Great Oak of Eardisley in Herefordshire. Recorded in the Domesday Book, this stately 900-year-old tree is much revered but perhaps has only become so because of its age. It serves as a wonderful reminder to protect and indeed plant young trees so that they too might reach the same lofty status!
Tom and Lydia started Atristraw Cider after moving to Herefordshire's Wye Valley in 2017. They discovered the name Artistraw in Kilvert's famous diaries, it being a local term for a shrew. Inspired by Normandy, they work with the seasons to make natural, full-juice cider and perry from local fruit, using minimal intervention techniques including cold racking for natural sweetness and bottle finishing to give a sparkle. They are rapidly gaining acclaim and won Highly Commended at the Royal Three Counties Cider and Perry Competition 2018.
