“Pernilla Perle is a declaration of love. To my wife Pernilla and to Swedish apples. Pernilla Perle is an off-dry, elegant, lightly petillant cider made entirely from Swedish apples, with a uniquely Swedish expression.”
Andreas Sundgren Graniti MD/Cidermaker
P. Perle. Pernilla. 2017
P – Perle, Pearly & Pernilla. A, fresh, petillant, semi-sweet cider. It’s off-dry character makes it well suited for a wide variety of gastronomic pairings. As an aperitif, together with Asian food across to heavy continental pork dishes and desserts.
This years Pernilla Perle differs from earlier years in that it
is drier and has a higher profile of apple clarity and more outspoken tannins. 2017 was one of the hardest years for apple growing in Sweden in decades with heavy frost and hail in the spring. As a result the 2017 harvest has given our cider an austere, elegant, more complex style compared to previous vintages. The balance in the Perle between sugar, alcohol and fruit has been joined by a length that holds great promise for future development and ageing.
