Kelly Brothers Pure Pear Cider
7% Alc/Vol - Kellybrooke Winery, Yarra Valley, VIC
Kelly Brothers cider is neither sweet nor too dry and carries light fresh pear notes on the nose and through the mid-palate – finishing slightly dry ... and then demanding another sip. 7% - Kellybrooke Winery, Yarra Valley, VIC
Cheeky Rascal – Sumerberry Cider
Rebello wines, Mornington Peninsula, VIC
Summerberry starts rich with raspberry, followed by blueberry, finishing with a very distinct fresh green pear to finish. This little package is the epitome of fruit cider. If you can imagine four fruits combined in a mouth filling swirl of a berry bomb, with just the right amount of sweetness and a touch of spice, then you know this blend. Rebello wines, Mornington Peninsula, VIC
Kelly Brothers Scrumpy
4.5-7.5% Alc/Vol - Kelly Bros, Kellybrook, Yarra Valley, VIC

4 Pines Ginger Beer
4% Alc/Vol - Brookvale Union Ginger Beer, Brookvale, NSW

Cerise Apple Cherry Cider
8% Alc/Vol - Pagan Cider, Tas
Wildly seductive, 100% naked: meet Cerise, our scarlet squeeze. She's our blushing beauty – a cheeky sparkling love-child, born of wholesome Tasmanian apples and dark sultry cherries. No sugar, nothing fake; just a naturally luscious sweetie.
A lush blend of 40% cherries and 60% apples, with an enticingly spicy perfumed nose and claret/burgundy hues. The palate is a playful métisse of dark cherries and plums, with rich Christmas fruit cake notes. Luscious on its own, 'Cerise' is also a knock-out barbecue cider, pairing beautifully with barbecued meats, game meats such as rabbit and venison, and roasted or barbecued duck.
