We enjoyed the Packham Pear Cider by The Cider Lab so immensely, we made it a priority to try the company’s other ciders, hoping for a similarly delicious experience. This here is The Cider Lab Pink Lady Apple Cider. Pink Lady apples are known as the Queen of Apples in Australia with a signature semi-sweet tart flavour.
The cider is a translucent very pale straw colour with a tart cider nose and moderate carbonation. Served chilled, the mellow sweetness of Pink Lady apples emerges with a citrus-like tartness in the body before the mild sweetness returns for a crisp and lightly astringent finish. There is no mistaking that this cider is made from Pink Lady apples, with the cider and carbonation picking up on the apple’s semi-sweet tart effervescent flavour.
While we weren’t as impressed with this Pink Lady Cider as we were with the Packham Pear Cider that’s mainly because standout apple ciders seem much easier to come by than standout pear ciders.
The packaging for The Cider Lab bottles is beautiful with a watercolour painting of Pink Lady apples printed on the underside of the back label so it shows through the cider.
This bottle of The Cider Lab Pink Lady Apple Cider contained 330 ml. It was bottled in Australia and purchased in Sydney, Australia in 2017.
