ASPALL - Perrronelles BlushEnglish Cyder
A twist on the classic Kir Royale - champagne and crème de cassis replaced by cyder and creme de mure (blackberry liquer). They named this after grandmother Perronelle and her rosy red cheeks.
The colour is deep blush suggestive of dark summer fruit, with a rich appearance due to the viscosity of the Creme de Mure. There is a subtle blackberry aroma with a hint of traditional cyder apple. Deceptively smooth with a silky but refreshing palate, Blush offers a perfect blend of sweetness and acidity. It has a lovely mouthfeel and a lingering aftertaste of berries.
Superb as an aperitif - as an alternative to pink sparkling wines like Rose Champagne, Perronelle's Blush is also an occasion drink - garden parties or balmy summer evenings after a hard day's work. Particularly good with smoked salmon and apple balsamic vinegar dressing and desserts such as tarte au citron or gooseberry crumble with fresh cream.
