Chenin blanc Semillon Zibibbo 2020.
This springwater fresh sparkling wine comes from hand-picked and own-rooted bush vines on the gravels and loams of the Darling Scarp foothills.
The third Pet Nat have made and the first under the SVW label.
This is an important wine for a multitude of reasons.
Like a ‘jigsaw falling into place’, it had to be perfect.
A lot of attention went into the tricky co-fermentation, the goal being a moderately fast and perfectly clean low solid ferment, suitably for bottling straight from tank.
No frozen juice, no secondary ferments, this is a methode ancestral and 100% natural, zero adds, but is by no means a minimal intervention wine. We disgorge here, as we want nothing to stand in the way of electric fruit.
Strong pear, mineral and yellow plum, with a touch of residual on the mid palate.
Long finish. Lazer sharp bubbles. No gush.
A new design for us. It seemed only appropriate in 2020. The missing piece to our range.
Enjoy the simpler things in life with this refreshing bubbly.
