Sidra Madeira PGI

Description: SIDRA DA MADEIRA: The beverage obtained from the alcoholic fermentation of the natural must (first-pressed juice) of fresh apples (Malus domestica Borkh.), and sometimes of mix of fresh apples and pears (Pyrus communis L.), from traditional varieties and from other varieties of these species produced in Madeira Island.
The combinations of varieties and species of fresh fruits used to produce SIDRA DA MADEIRA, make it to present different colours that can go from bright citrus to dark yellow, with orange nuances, and it may either have a turbid aspect or a clearer one, when filtered.
SIDRA DA MADEIRA is usually still, not too sweet and light, and it unfolds, showing harmony between the acidity and bitterness, ending up dry and standing out due to the presence of apple in its scent and flavour, as well as to the freshness granted by its unique acidity.
