J Vineyards & Winery-Russian River Pear Liqueur NV
In 1995, Bartlett Pear juice was fermented to dryness in stainless steel tanks. The juice was then double distilled in copper alambic stills, yielding a pear brandy (eau-de-vie) of approximately 50% alcohol. The pear eau-de-vie was aged for 10 years in 90 gallon Limousin oak barrels. Distilled water and liquid sugar were added to reduce the alcohol level to 30% (60 proof). The sugar broadens the palate and takes away the heat, bringing forth the pear essence. The liqueur was then cold stabilized and aged for an additional 6 months before bottling.
This limited offering liqueur glimmers through the glass a golden green hue. A beautiful effervescence of delicate yet bold pear on the nose. Honey and fruit slow dance through the palate leaving a flavorful symphony of lingering, lasting notes to remember.
