Little Pomona Col Fondo
Susanna and James Forbes of Little Pomona make natural cider from their 120 tree orchard in Thornbury, North Herefordshire.
This is their 2019 Col Fondo (with bottom) sparkling cider made from handpicked Egremont Russet apples sourced from the Cotswold Orchards in Worcestershire. On the nose there’s plenty of Russet character along with honeydew melon and blossom. It’s a lovely green tinged, slightly hazy yellow colour. In the mouth it has a pillowy sparkle, flavours of kiwi and lime zest and that characteristic spice and slight tanginess of the col fondo method.
