In the little town of Spreyton just outside of Devonport, Tasmania is a family business. The business dates back to 1850’s but it wasn’t until 1900’s when the 2 families planted the first orchard. Nearly 100 years later Spreyton Fresh started juicing those apples. In 2012 Spreyton Fresh started fermenting that juice and Spreyton Cider Co was born. Today I’m presented with the Spreyton Cider Co 2014 Vintage. Over 100 years in the making, was it worth the wait?
Driving through the Hunter, we stopped for lunch at Peterson House. Peterson’s have made their name in sparkling wines. Along side the restaurant is a cellar door. Hiding in the corner I saw a cider: Pokolbin Cider House 2012 Vintage Cider. So I thought I’d have a look.
