Revel Cider - Pear Nat (2020)

Meet Pear-Nat! A one-of-a-kind sparkling perry (read: pear cider) that was co-fermented with Seyval Blanc, a cold climate hybrid grape that isn’t recognized internationally but is prolific enough in Canada and the Carolinas to be called “East Coast Chardonnay.”
 
Pear-Nat is the collaborative brain-child of both Revel and the Grapes Witches. The goal was to create a one-of-a-kind, crushable cider—the kind of thing we want to drink every day.

Revel Cider & ibi wines started in 2014 as a solo passion project. Imagine our excitement when it turned out that, hey, lots of folks are fermentation enthusiasts!

By 2021, our team was seven people strong — with over 1000 cases of Revel cans and bottles shipped to discerning drinkers every month.

Our characterful native yeast fermentations explore the endless flavours Ontario has to offer. Combining farm-grown and foraged fruits, discovering what the fermentation process yields, and aiming to bring out the best of each ingredient is what makes us excited to come to work every day. (Well, that, and all the incredible smells.)

It's kinda like citric gooseberries and fuzzy peaches jump into a Dita Von Teese-sized champagne coupe followed by Bosc pears and tart lychee.
High acid, textured and fresh, it really does leap from the glass, almost like something seasonal you’d otherwise be eating with a fork. The very embodiment of Good Things Grow in Ontario, this is the new wave of Ontario cider and winemaking at its very best — wild, experimental & always delicious.
