Varieties of pear to grow for perry

I'm looking at plant nursery catalogs and wondering what the effects are of the various qualities that they list for perry pears: high vs low tannin and acid, for example.

Anyone have advice on what pear varieties and qualities produce what kind of perry? I live in a Mediterranean climate, with lots of sun, good heat in summer. Semi-low to low-chill varieties of most fruits work best.
