Best Aussie Craft Cider Made Of Cider Apples
Thorny Devil wants you to live and learn all about Aussie craft cider and craft beers: so we give you all the craft beer news = globally; hope the following article helps you understand more about craft beer.
The quality of craft cider in Australia will only improve as producers step up their plantings of traditional cider apple varieties, says cider expert Bill Bradshaw.
Bradshaw, a UK-based cider critic, author and photographer, was guest judge at this year’s Australian Cider Awards, announced in Melbourne on Friday night.
The vast majority of real Australian ciders entered were made using table or culinary apples, which renders the cider maker’s task very difficult, Bradshaw told Australian Brews News.
“If you gave a European cider maker culinary fruit to make cider, they would fall flat on their face. It’s much harder to make an interesting cider from culinary fruit,” he said.
“There’s a lot of technical skill and a lot of creativity that goes into the blends – knowing how to get the fruitiness out of the fruit without it just falling over and being flat and boring.”
For the second year running, Willie Smith’s Organic Cider won top prize at the awards with a cider made exclusively from traditional cider apple varieties.
Other producers including Red Sails, LOBO and Spreyton in Tasmania, Henry of Harcourt and Daylesford in Victoria and Small Acres in NSW, are already working with cider apples.
Based on his recent travels, Bradshaw said many others look to be following suit with cider apple plantings, but he questioned why others are persisting with culinary apples.
“I was surprised that some cider makers are planting new cider orchards but they’re not using cider fruit,” he said.
He said these producers clearly understand the parallels with wine, which needs the right grapes to make wine with tannin structure and complexity, as opposed to the grape varieties found in a supermarket.
“The same link you could apply to cider, with cider apples making good cider,” he said. “Using culinary apples is like stripping back your toolbox.”
