Perry - Ice / Fortified
An Ice Perry is a perry obtained by the fermentation of the juice of pears left on trees into the winter and picked when they are frozen. This results in highly concentrated pears, from which juice is pressed and then fermented. Less traditional producers ferment juice than has been partially frozen to achieve concentration. The resulting product must have a residual sugar content of not less than 130 g per litre and an actual alcoholic strength between 7 and 13% by volume. A Fortified Perry, is a perry to which flavouring substances, sugar or pear juice may have been added, that, through fermentation or the addition of neutral alcohol, has an actual alcoholic strength between 15 and 20% by volume, and that must have the typical characteristics of an aperitif wine or the sensory characteristics of pears or perry.
