2021 Wild Things Pétillant-Naturel
95% Organic Tempranillo
Produced using Tempranillo, with a splash of Chardonnay, Chenin & Sauv Blanc. The base wine was made in tank from hand-picked and whole-bunch pressed Shiraz, and whites. Fermented to 15g/l res. sugar. Settled in tank for an extended period so that half the lees dropped out. No preservatives added to finished wine. We hand-bottled this wine and let the fermentation finish off in bottle.
The colour is exactly as the picture, bright pink-red. As soon as you pop the top you get the fizz, but not too much that you lose half the bottle. We actually advise you give it a very small roll to mix through the lees as it gives the wine an awesome texture. Guava and raspberry on the nose. Fruit tingle guava and grapefruit refresh the palate, delicate fizz leads to a savoury finish. Clean and absolutely smashable.
