Organic Fortified Pear Wine 18,2 % vol
The so-called Speckbirne is a cider pear from the Austrian Mostviertel region, which gets its name from the shine of its peel. While the cider obtained from this variety is very mild, its alcohol content is one of the highest of all cider pears. Organic distiller Josef Farthofer based his SPECKBIRNE 302 on the traditional production process of Pineau de Charentes. He stops the fermentation of the pear cider by adding pear eau de vie, which Josef also distills by himself. In this way, the natural residual sugar is preserved, there is no addition of sugar. SPECKBIRNE 302 can be enjoyed as a perfect companion for strong cheeses, can be mixed well with sparkling wine, or served chilled as an aperitif.
