  • 4 Pears
  • 1 cup(s) Sugar
  • 1 Bottle Sparkling Sweet Rosé
  • 2 cup(s) Water
  • 1 Cinnamon Stick, Halved
  • 1 Lemon, Zest
  • 1 Orange, Zest
  • Cream or Ice-Cream to serve


Step 1

Peel the pears, keeping the stems intact if possible. Squeeze a little lemon juice over them to stop them from browning.

Step 2

Place the sugar, Robertson Winery Sparkling Sweet Rosé, water, cinnamon, lemon and orange zest in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir until sugar has fully dissolved then increase heat and bring to the boil.

Step 3

Once the poaching liquid has come to the boil, reduce the heat again and add the pears. Cover the pears completely with a piece of foil. Cook for 20 minutes or until tender.

Step 4

Allow to cool completely or serve warm with cream or ice cream and a drizzle of poaching liquid.
