Pilton Cider, Pilton, Somerset, UK - Smokey Plum
Style: Plum Wine with Keeved Cider
This the third edition of our Islay-barrel Plum Wine with keeved cider is easily the best yet.
Plums were hand picked in summer 2020 and we fermented them spontaneously, mashing every day for two weeks. The slightly funky plum wine was then matured in islay whisky barrels and blended with sweet keeved cider just before bottling.
Sharp plum acidity is balanced by luscious keeved sweetness, whilst generous fruit is enhanced by smooth curls of warm smoke.
