Butford Organics Aurora Perry 2018 750ml
See Chris's tasting HERE.
This is the last of Martin Harris's 2018 Aurora Premier Crus Perry which has been by far and away one of my biggest selling perries of the last year (luckily I bought the majority of the vintage!).
Martin's ciders and perries are all fully organic with minimal intervention, think 'natural wine' for a fraction of the cost. It opens with an audible 'pop' (this perry is 'pet nat') and pours a hazey 'brassy' amber/gold with a lovely head of foam. On the nose there is a bright element of pear drops along with rich buttery pear. On the palate it is almost bone dry with a wonderful lemon/sherbert acidity and the bubbles form a terrific mousse. Undertones of rich pear provide balance to the bold acidity and the whole thing makes for a fabulous drinking experience.
