From three varieties of French perry pears in 2020, grown by friends of Little Pomona Stephen Ware at Throne Farm in Weobley.
Handpicked varieties Longbois, Faucett and Antricotin are stored in approximately equal quantities to let them fully ripen, before milling and macerating for 48 hours. After pressing they were sent to tank to ferment spontaneously, before later bottling as a pét nat with no chemical additions.
The result is a sleek, elegant perry that oozes creamy ripe pear fruit – the whole fruit that is, including skin and core – along with distinct lime leaf, aniseed, kiwi and melon. Subtle tannins, gentle sparkle and soft acid rounds everything out perfectly.
