Silver Cider

Queensland has successfully mounted a challenge on the Apple Isle with a silver medal being awarded to a cider from the Sunshine State.

David (pictured) and Ros Sutton's orchard on Queensland's Granite Belt is a cidery oasis in the Queensland wine capital. Their dry cider is made from Jonathon apples and it hit the right flavour notes with judges at this year's Australian Fruit wine Show.
