Cider has the same (some argue greater) depth of tastes and pallets as fine Wine.
There are many factors which can influence the taste of a Cider, including:
Yeast (for fermentation)
Method of Fermentation
Blending (the art of the Cidermaker)
For many years, Cider has been sold as Sweet, Medium, Dry or somewhere along that scale. This only goes so far in describing the attributes of Cider and other such factors such as Acidity or 'Body' can also be used in the same way as is with Wine.
A perfect place to explore the range of tastes is with our Craft Cider Discovery Case.
