Winemaking:

Our 2018 Gamay Noir Pet Nat was hand harvested and selected for bright acidity and fresh fruit flavours. We de-stemmed and skin soaked the grapes for 24 hours before pressing to retain colour and a little phenolics. This fruit was treated like a traditional method sparkling, where cuts are made at the press for best quality of juice. The juice was cold settled and racked to stainless steel tanks for fermentation. When the sugar was just right, we racked and cold settled again. Our Gamay was then bottled so the alcoholic fermentation could finish in the bottle. Once the fermentation finished, we did not disgorge and nothing was added. This wine remains on its lees, protected by the natural CO2 to remain a bubbly delight.

Appearance:

Pale rose colour with  a salmon hue and bubbles!

Aroma:

Fresh and fruity with pink grapefruit, strawberry and watermelon notes. Secondary aromas of pomegranate, plum and candy floss underlay in the glass.

Palate:

This youthful wine has a palate that matches its aromas. This Gamay Noir Pét-Nat is fruit-driven, soft and textured with subtle bubbles that create a unique wine. The palate is clean, fresh and easy drinking. A youthful
wine with a light mouthfeel, balanced acidity, an effervescent textured mid palate and a smooth finish. Serve chilled at 6-8 degrees Celsius. A great wine to have on its own or with light dishes and appetizers.
