This is a delicious sparkling Perry made from organically grown traditional varieties of Perry pears.

Though relatively uncommon, perry pear trees are easily identified in an orchard landscape by their great height and cascading white blossom. Some of these majestic perry trees are over 300 years old. The mature trees can very often produce over a ton of pears. Dunkertons harvest and press a range of traditional varieties with wonderful names such as Merrylegs, Red Horse, Moorcroft, Painted Lady and Thorn. Each variety of perry pear is pressed, fermented and stored separately and then blended a year after pressing.

Perry was usually drunk in large quantities by all workers and farm labourers would frequently receive part of their wages in quantities of perry. Often perry was sent to areas with large populations in times of conflict with the French when imports of wine were reduced.

Tasting notes

Pours golden and slightly hazy with very gentle bubbles.

With an over-ripe pear fragrance, the taste is creamy with a good balance between initial sweetness and the dryness of the finish.

Dunkertons Perry is fragrant and delicate and should be served lightly chilled.
