Break Free Bliss Bomb Pet Nat
Vineyard: Swan Valley, WA
Planted: Old vine Chenin Blanc vines dating back to 1930
Winemaking: Picked early on acidity/aromatics, cold pressed free run 100% Chenin Blanc to closed stainless for wild yeast fermentation. Monitored daily and bottled at 3g/L Be, to finish fermentation, no fining or filtration and a light fizz ensues. Stabilized for four weeks prior to released. Vegan. Minimal sulphites.
Tasting Notes: Pét-Nat is produced in the méthode ancestral, otherwise known as ‘rurale’, ‘artisanale’, or ‘gaillacoise’. In essence, the wine is bottled prior to fully completing its first fermentation, allowing carbon dioxide to be produced by the natural sugars found in the grapes. Unlike Champagne, Pét-Nat is not disgorged, and may or may not be filtered on completion of fermentation. Our second vintage Pet-Nat is made from 100% Swan Valley (WA) Chenin Blanc from a single vineyard. Minimal use of both insecticides and pesticides, the fruit was picked for acidity rather than sugar levels and transported to Denmark for processing by Clandestine Vineyards contract winemaker Andrew Vesey at Castelli Estate. Cold pressed to preserve aromatics, the juice was fermented in one single stainless steel tank under it’s own wild yeast. Just prior to fermenting to dry, the wine was immediately bottled under crown cap with no further adjustment, filtration or fining to finish the last of the ferment in bottle, allowing for the light carbon dioxide to produce a light fizz. At only 11.0% ALC/VOL; this delightful, light and utterly smashable sparkling wine has aromatic ginger and lemongrass notes, bright and vibrant green straw colour and a fresh palate of apples, pears and citrus blossoms. Ideally served on a picnic blanket, some cheese, pate, fruits and some great friends.
Better make it two bottles...
