Medium Still Cider
A joining of worlds. Ross on Wyes Dabinett, fermented in Kentucky oak barrels, with its aromatic vanilla, gentle and complex tannins, melded with Nightingales Bramley, with bracing acidity and delicious green sourness. We tried a dozen blends, but this one tells a story of East and West, of Kentish and Herefordian cidermaking.
In 2019 we brewed a rye-heavy wort which we put into an oak butt to ferment with our own mixed culture. After several months, it finished fermentation with a good amount of sugar remaining. This sweet, slightly spicy, sour beer needed something special added that would contrast the sweetness. Similar to our Blueberry Sour, we decided to experiment with Blackcurrant puree to bring big, mouth puckeringly dry tannins & a bit of bitterness to balance it out.
The IPAs of yesteryear were brewed strong, bitter & hoppy in order to withstand travelling long distances/ageing - a vast difference to what we generally accept IPAs to be today. We wanted to make something that bridges that gap & brewed a barrel aged, mixed fermented beer, generously hopped with Nelson Sauvin & Amarillo hops. The resulting beer is fruity and funky with a hop character that will continue to develop over time.

Winemaker Adrian Pike on the Blanc de Blancs 2013
"We took over Westwell in the summer of 2017. Having tasted through the sparkling wines which we had inherited (from previous owner and winemaker John Rowe), we realised that there were some real jewels amongst them. The 2013 Blanc de Blancs was one of the highlights - a pristine and elegant Chardonnay with the acidity for longevity. Its a real celebration of Chardonnay and how it can develop with careful ageing".
This wine really shows the potential for the site at Westwell where the vines are digging into the chalk slope of the North Downs.

From an exceptional south-facing single vineyard set high on the North Downs. Without question the best still English wine I have tasted.

The acreage under vine is huge by UK standards. They have been selling grapes to larger, well-known and very commercial English wineries around England but are now determined to concentrate on their own production.
A more golden colour in the glass, bit more body, nice touch of malt.
The concept was to create a juicy tropical beer. A brew you can sit on and drink all day, rammed with juicy malts and huge tropical aromas of mango and grapefruit. Massive additions of American hops are added to the whirlpool giving huge hop flavour. The beer is then dry hopped for days, driving the punchy aromas so you can smell it from miles away!
