Cider of the week: 2016 Abel ‘Méthode’ Cider

Abel Cider, crafted in Nelson, New Zealand, follows a thrillingly straightforward principle: to turn the region’s best apples and pears into a world class cider. Sure, it’s an ambitious approach, but by treating the product like a fine sparkling wine (read: gentle fruit handling, secondary bottle fermentation, unfined, unfiltered), they’ve crafted a drop that’s bone dry, approachable and also compelling. Drink this alongside some of your favourite cheese.
