2019 Petillant Naturel
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. Our organic 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. We used ancestral methods of finishing the tank ferment in bottle in November. Non-riddled and non-disgorged with no dosage added. Shows apple, citrus and tropical aromas with vibrant acidity that is pillowed with our Estate’s signature minerality. No sulfites added. Limited small lot release.
Suitable for a vegan diet.
