Monnow Valley Cider Redneck Rascal is a traditional-style, medium, full-juice, bottle-conditioned, sweet sparkling blend of Porters Perfection and Vilberie. Porter's Perfection is a bittersharp apple that originated in Somerset, while vilberie is a French bittersweet variety that produces a very tannic juice. This comes through into the flavour of this cider, having a tannic profile with light acidity and a drying astringency. The bottle we tried we found to be off-dry, and pétillant from the conditioning.
