 ~2020 MICHELIN ~

Honeydew melon on the nose. Lemon and banana on the palate. Medium acidity and medium tannin.

Originating in Normandy although rare in France by the 20th century became the most planted cider variety in England. A  mid-season, medium ‘bittersweet’ apple, relatively high in sugars, low in malic acid, and high in tannins. Its avoidance of biennial fruiting tendencies makes it a reliable cropper, typically a nice blending apple with Dabinett or other varieties.

The company played an active role in the development of English cider, including investing in orchards, production techniques and different varieties. Bulmers Norman is one of their “in-house” varieties, although as the name suggests it almost certainly originates from the region of Normandy in France.  BN produces a bittersweet juice.
