Our Estate vineyard has been organic since it was planted in 2005 and this release of Petillant Naturel (Pet Nat) fully represents the flavours of the vineyard that we have been diligently fostering. Organic and vegan practices such as compost teas encourage healthy microbiology of our unique rocky ancient seabed soil as well as on the vines and grapes. The result is a truly terroir-based wine with enhanced minerality from our schist and sandstone soil and complex flavours from a wild ferment of natural vineyard fauna.

The 2023 growing season had many curveballs starting with a polar vortex in February that damaged buds. Luckily we adjusted our pruning and had reasonable yields. Heat units were low with many rains and this early release Pet Nat has zippy acidity, characteristic of the growing season.
