From Unsprayed Orchards: Gluten Free - Suitable for Vegans & Coeliacs
A case of superb Limited Edition naturally conditioned Sparkling Perries from the Ross on Wye Cider & Perry Company, made from Perry Pears grown in their own orchards on trees over thirty years old:
2 x 2020 – Thorn & Flakey Bark Oak Cask Perry (5.8% ABV)
This is Thorn, but not as you know it. 90% Thorn, 10% Flakey Bark meets fermentation in ex-Raison d’Être barrels. The result is completely unique. Rather than the big acidity of Thorn, or the challenging astringency of Flakey, or even the smoke of oak casks, everything is rolled into one. One luscious, juicy, unbroken flavour that begins on the lips and fills the mouth completely. Gorgeous, quaffable, green and silky, full flavoured perry with no compromise.
2 x 2020 Yellow Huffcap S.V. (7.3% ABV)
Yellow Huffcap is a wonderful variety, but it is one of those pears that could also be described as a ‘nightmare.
As a tree it is magnificent, easily growing to more than fifty foot tall. That becomes a challenge during the
harvest as this is one of those pears which ‘bletts’ on the tree, meaning if you do not collect the fruit quickly
enough, it will all be rotten before you can press it! Btu if you manage it, then the perry it produces
is unique in all the world, full of crisp acidity, sweet sherbet and honeysuckle notes.
2 X 2019-2020 Green Horse S.V. (7.2% ABV)
Green Horse is an unusual pear first recorded in 1886, though where it originated or what name those first pear pickers gave it, nobody truly knows. Pears are winding, mysterious entities that, although we see them but once a year, watch us through the generations. This perry, made from just two trees, last fruited in 2013. Yet to our delight, two harvests appeared in succession. The 2020 juice, full of zingy, limey acidity blended gorgeously with the mature, malolactic fermentation influenced, soft and creamy 2019 barrel. May contain a natural sediment from bottle conditioning.
