Small Acres have probably won more awards than anybody else on the Australian Cider scene. The 2013 version of this took out the Best Perry at the 2016 Cider Awards. So, with this year’s awards right around the corner is the Small Acres 2016 Perry a hot tip to take out the gong again?
There was old yarn about the pioneers pushing west. Their efforts were foiled by a dog sitting on their tuckerbox spoiling the food supplies. Borambola Wines also had dog who stood guard who met an untimely end and have chosen to name their cider, Tuckerbox Apple Cider, after this Jack Russel Terrior box. Borambola Wines are based between Gundagai and Wagga Wagga in the central southern region of New South Wales. The company started as a winery and while they do grow the grapes locally, the apples are sourced from Orange. And hey, we know Orange grows great apples so we are off to a good start.
