2019 Wondering – Pet Nat Rose
About this wine
Doesn’t everyone love rose? When it’s made like this it is the perfect thing to quench your afternoon thirst! Produced from grapes picked only for rose this elegant wine will go head to head with any bottle from Frances famed Provence. Vinification: The Carignane was foot tread and then held in a 500 gallon tank for 3 months in order to drop out solids. It then had an extremely long and slow fermentation over 5-6 weeks. During this fermentation the wine was racked off solids multiple times to ensure clarification in bottle. The more solids in a petillant naturel the more foam when opening, so we try and limit solids in the end product. This wine is crown capped at 16 grams per liter residual sugar. This creates an estimated 4 atmospheres of pressure. For reference champagne usually has around 6atm. And viola a single fermentation sparkling aka petillant naturel aka pet nat is born. Tasting Notes: This in is explosive! Cool it down and open with a thumb over the top. Yes I expect you will lose a bit, but it will be worth it. The wine is completely delicious. Great bubble and great mouthfeel will kick off any celebration!
