Blakeney Red pears in Monmouthshire

Another day of perry pear picking at a Monmouthshire Farm. This time the variety is Blackeney Red, a traditional perry pear originaly from Gloucs. Centuries old farm with 200 year old trees. Good tannins in the perry pear balenced with plenty of sugar, this should ferment out to about 5-6% ABV when ready in the new year. Roll on the Welsh Cider and Perry Festival in May when this perry from Llanblethian Orchards.
