DRINK OF THE WEEK
25th May 2020
Waitrose Vintage Cider
Waitrose £2.09 (500ml)
Drinker Rating 90
When the weather gets much warmer there are two things that British drinkers reach for - sales of cider and rosť shoot through the roof.
When it comes to cider there is a massive choice with all the bog standard big brands, the super-strong stuff for drinking with your chums on a park bench and then there are those that are a cut above.
This vintage cider from Waitrose is made by Westons from a batch of apples of the same year.It has a very lovely appley depth, a fantastic balance of sweetness and acidity and undercutting that lovely structure from just the right amount of tannin.
Sit in the shade and serve very cold.
