St Andrews Sparkling Cider 750ml $15

Restaurants and bars across Hawke’s Bay have been enjoying sole custody of this cracking new cider – but that’s all changed now that the nation can buy it from their snazzy new website.  Deeply golden and boasting subtle, fruit-wax and pure apple aromas, it’s produced from apples grown on John Parsons’ St Andrews Road orchard, made by chief cider maker Andrew Condon, and bottled by chief bottling officer Tim Nowell-Usticke of Wineworks fame.  Deliciously dry, elegant and cleansing, it’s focussed and fabulous.  More please!
