Perry Pear Cultivars
(Medium to Significant Tannins) – (Astringency Low to High) – (Low to Medium Acids) – (Some are Aromatic) – (Variable Sugar with Unfermentable Sugars)
Typically perry pears are used as a 30-100% base for European style perrys that rely on residual sweetness. Many perry pears also produce dry perries that take well to natural or forced carbonation. When finished, perries made from true perry pears are often considered to be superior to perries made from culinary or eating pears because of the unique flavor, profile, and overall beverage quality.
