A single variety kegged perry using Thorn pears. We have chosen to find a fuller flavour by blending 80% of matured 2019 juice with fresh 2020 juice that had started fermenting but not finished – leaving us with the perfect amount of sugar to naturally condition in the keg on it’s own – aka Pét Nat. This perry is crisp, juicy, with medium green kiwi-like acidity and some light astringency.
