Our 2020 Gamay Noir Pet Natwas hand harvested and selected for bright acidity and fresh fruit flavours. We de-stemmed
and skin soaked the grapes for 12 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 can finish in the bottle. Once the fermentation
finished, we did not do any additions, we did disgorge, however, we did not add anything
but itself to top itself. No sulphur added, this wine is protected by the natural CO2 to remain
a bubbly delight.
Dusty rose colour with a leesiness and bubbles!
Fresh and fruity with rhubarb, strawberry, watermelon and gooseberry notes.
Secondary aromas of pomegranate, plum, candy floss underlay in the glass. A balanced,
fresh and fruit-driven young wine.
The aromas of this young wine translate into the flavours on the palate. This
Gamay Noir Pét Nat is fruit-driven, fresh and has subtle bubbles that creates a unique
wine. Soft red fruits are on the forefront of the palate with notes of freshly picked
strawberries, cherry, raspberry and grapefruit rind. Underlying fruit flavours of rhubarb and
pomegranates along with candy notes are subtle. A youthful wine with a light mouthfeel,
balanced acidity, an effervescent mid palate and a smooth, clean finish. This natural wine
has not had anything added or anything taken out. This fun, young wine is meant to be served
chilled at 6-8°C. A great wine to have on its own or with light dishes and appetizers.
