A blend of French bittersweet apple varieties, this wild flower-honey colored cider is warm and satiating on the nose. Cinnamon, nutmeg and dried ginger are dusted over ripe pear compote. The palate brings a bit of earth tones into play, with barnyard funk and bruised apple notes, yet the warm spice character of the nose still appear. Grainy, pear-skin tannins give this medium-bodied cider ample texture and grip. For an interesting pairing, try this pétlliant pour with duck or quail.

Formerly working in the Finger Lakes wine region of upstate New York, Peartree's passion for terroir-expressive products, which spans from wine to cider and tea, is only rivaled by his love of canoeing and hiking. On top of enjoying wines from the region where his wine career began, he can often be caught drinking Old World selections from his central and southern Italian beats.
