2020 ‘King Fizzard’ Pétillant Naturel
Pétillant naturel translates from French to “natural sparkling”. It is the ancestral method of creating sparkling wine using wild yeast fermentation interrupted by bottling of the wine before primary ferment is complete.
100% Sauvignon Blanc
Cloudy apricot in colour from the by-products of fermentation that are suspended in the wine, this natural sparkling is a tropical taste sensation.Passionfruit and guava dominate with a salty/sour element adding to its complexity. A very bubbly sherbet vibe with a resemblance to Passiona.
For this batch we used 100% Sauvignon Blanc that was hand picked.
It underwent carbonic maceration creating some beautiful complex characters then we pressed to tank allowing it to almost finish fermentation, (under temperature control) before bottling at 14g/L of residual sugar.
WARNING : Open outside and into a wide mouthed decanter.
Best drunk with a big plate of fresh prawns
