  • 4 Pears (peeled)
  • 1 bottle Bimbadgen Estate Shiraz
  • 1 stick Cinnamon
  • 3 Clove
  • 2 Star anise
  • 1 tsp grated Nutmeg
  • ½ cup sugar


  1. Place all ingredients into a pot and bring up the heat to a gentle simmer.
  2. The pears are cooked when you can just pierce them with a skewer with no resistance. This could take anywhere between 30mins and an hour and a half depending on the size of the pears or strength of your burner.
  3. Allow the pears to cool in the syrup as the spices will continue to develop flavour and the pears will absorb this.
