Once Upon a Tree The Wonder Pear Ice Wine 2015
A delicious and really interesting ice wine made from the frozen juice of fresh pears
Once Upon A Tree are a Herefordshire based, multi-award winning craft cider producer. The brain-child of Simon Day, who is also the enigmatic winemaker at Sixteen Ridges, these craft ciders are made to similar principles to wine. Utimate care is taken to select the best fruit, and they use the least intervention possible to ensure the maximum amount of flavour is imparted into their ciders and perrys. This unique sweet pear ice wine is made by freezing the juice of fresh Conferenceand Comice pears and allowing them to slowly defrost, releasing a much more concentrated juice. This is then fermented over several months to create a deliciously mouthwatering sweet pear ice wine.
This pear ice wine is excellent, the pear flavours are incredibly concentrated resulting in a complex flavour balanced with hints of elderflower and spiced poached pear. This is a great alternative to traditional dessert wines and much lower alcohol.
