2018 Pét-Nat of Pinot Noir
Pétillant Naturel is a method of producing sparkling wine, also referred to as “Methode Ancestrale”, where the carbonation occurs from bottling the wine during the primary, alcoholic fermentation – in order to capture the carbon dioxide that is being naturally released. This sparkling rosé was made from all estate-grown, Demeter certified Biodynamic® Pinot Noir grapes. We farm Block 3, a small northwest facing section of the vineyard planted to clone 667, specifically for this wine. We strive to achieve ripe fruit flavors and higher acidity, for a fresh and juicy expression of Pinot Noir. After 24 hours of skin contact, the grapes were pressed and fermented in a stainless steel tank before it was bottled at the tail end of its primary fermentation. Bottled unfiltered and contains lees – pour off slowly or invert to evenly distribute.
