ZEFFER CIDER INTRODUCES SLACK MA GIRDLE!

We’re very excited to share this special Reserve Range cider with you! Our 2021 Slack Ma Girdle is crafted from more than 50 cider apple varieties, some of which we’ve grown right here in our (little) orchard at our cidery in Hawke’s Bay. This marks the first cider we’ve bottled for you using our very own apples ?

To craft this special drop, the cider was pressed and then transferred without clarification into old wine barrels. We let the juice start fermenting naturally, as we tend to let our reserve range ciders ferment ‘wild’. This adds a layer of complexity to the cider and an element of uncertainty that allows this special juice to seek its own path. After its 5 week wild fermentation, the cider was aged on lees for a further 6 months before racking and bottling.

At 6.7% ABV, our Slack Ma Girdle is full-bodied and dry with a deep amber hue. It has ripe apple and tropical fruit notes on the nose and a firm, challenging tannin structure on the palate, making it a great cider to pair with food.

We’ve made a very small quantity of this one and it’s available exclusively from our online shop, so head on over to scoop yours up: https://www.zeffer.co.nz/shop/slack-ma-girdle
