Brady's Lookout | 2017 Tasmanian Wild Cuvée Cider
This newly released cider is straw in colour with a million of fine bubbles and fabulous length. A delicate, fruity and spicy apple cider with light notes of honey and baked strawberries from the méthode traditionnelle production.
Made in the Tamar Valley from 100% Tasmanian apples, this cider is unique in that it is crafted using a wild ferment (from the apple itself) instead of commercial yeast, making each vintage an expression of a particular year. Using indigenous yeast is already an incredibly rare choice in Champagne, so imagine in Tasmanian cider-making... simply unseen before.
Named after Matthew Brady - The Prince of Bushrangers, Brady's Lookout Orchards craft premium, aged ciders located in the Tamar Valley. After years of watching her Dad making his ‘infamous cider’, Caroline decided to start her cider-making journey in 2012 with husband Chris. Experimenting with different production styles of cider, they fell in love with Méthode Traditionnelle (champagne method) and applied it to cider-making, using apples instead of grapes. Using very technical skills to combine levels of sugar, acidity and alcohol throughout a 2-year fermentation process, they successfully created a fine and elegant match between Tasmanian apples and French champagne production method. They even travelled to Europe to perfect their knowledge, returning to Tasmania to create the next generation of 'infamous ciders' which they are famous for today. At Fizztopia, we’re very admirative of them and love – LOVE, their award-winning range of ciders.
