An attractive, fresh and naturally sweet sparkling cider. Sweet Rosie has the light fruit sweetness of fresh Pink Lady apples. The alcohol level is restricted to 4.5%.
Traditionally, sweet cider would only be available if taken from the vat during fermentation. Taken early, it would have high sweetness and low alcohol. If taken toward the end of fermentation it would have relatively less sweetness and higher alcohol. Fining and racking between vats would extend the life of sweet cider however it would always have a propensity to ferment to full dryness.
Sweet Rosie is a full fruit sweet cider exhibiting the clean sweetness of Pink Lady apples. This is achieved through a ‘stop ferment’ process; stopping the ferment at the desired level of alcohol and sweetness. It has the classic character of initial fruit sweetness balanced by a fresh cleansing acidity, much sought after in classic sweet cider.
