Tannic. Medium to medium-sweet. Still to lightly sparkling. Only very slight acetification is acceptable. Mousiness, ropy/oily characters are serious faults.
There is a pear character, but not obviously fruity. It tends toward that of a young white wine. Some slight bitterness.
Slightly cloudy to clear. Generally quite pale.
Relatively full, moderate to high tannin apparent as astringency.
Traditional perry is made from pears grown specifically for that purpose rather than for eating or cooking. Many “perry pears” are nearly inedible. Varieties: Butt, Gin, Huffcap, Blakeney Red, etc.
