A still medium perry available in 750ml bottles and occasionally on draught.
NB: Gwatkin sometimes produces draught versions that differ significantly from the bottled. If you rate a draught version please specify that and include details of the ABV and designated sweetness level (if provided).
The Oldfield pear is the queen of all the perry pear varieties, dating back many centuries, and was widely grown in the Three Counties area, where a few trees may still be found. The small elegant trees fruit bi-annually. Green in colour, the pears press out to a clear sparkling juice. Listed as a "vintage pear", it was always kept as a single variety and in the past was said to have rivalled the best wines of France. Made today in the same traditional way, it is just as pleasing.
