During primary fermentation wild yeast (spontaneously fermented with native ambient yeasts) sidra natural (natural cider), is chilled to arrest fermentation then racked into a sealed tank in the charmat method and gradually allowed to return to fermentation temperature. It is bottled with a bit of residual sugar to yield a lively, naturally sparkling, off-dry sidra brut that preserves the earthy aromas of traditional sidra.

The Cider Journal: There is a rough elegance to this Spanish sparkler that is very appealing. Think Johnny Depp dressed in white. Tom Wark
