The Alpine Cloudy Cider is made from a mix of roughly 50% red eating apples and the rest is a secret blend of cider apples. All of which are grown in the Wandiligong orchard. It's lucky that there is even a Cloudy cider this year. Back when this vintage's fruit was growing it was the peak of Australia's Black Summer. While the orchard was narrowly spared the worst of the bush fires the smoke hung thick in the air for 4-6 weeks while the apples were growing, reducing the sunlight hitting the fruit. Luckily the fruits thick skin didn't let in any smokey flavours, unlike many wine grapes who were also effected by the fires.
