2019 Petillant Naturel

Petillant Naturel is a rustic, unpretentious sparkling wine meant to be enjoyed in its youth.  Made using Methode Ancestrale, the wine is bottled before fermentation is complete, resulting in a gently sparkling wine with a light sediment.  An example of the earliest style of sparkling wine, it suits casual occasions and an adventurous spirit.  Extremely  limited--3 bottles per person.

Tasting notes

Alluring aromas of fresh fruit, yeast and earth.  Pure, unadulterated and alive with moderate fizz.

Production notes

Our first ever methode ancestrale sparkler is a field blend of red and white grapes from our bio-intensively farmed estate vineyard.  Rather than waste fruit that wasn’t suitable for varietal wines, we diverted it into a unique new expression.

Fruit was pressed into neutral oak barriques where spontaneous fermentation took hold.   Two different lots, one of early season fruit and the other of later-picked varieties, were blended before bottling. 

Slightly before dryness was achieved, the wine was chilled and racked to reduce cloudiness.  After bottling, fermentation resumed and finished in the bottle, resulting in a dry wine with approximately three atmospheres of pressure.

The finished wine is hazy and bright, reflecting life at our vineyard.
