The Cabernet Franc for this wine is sourced from older, often virused vineyards that struggle to ripen fruit enough to produce red wines. The beauty of this is that they still maintain their acidity at low brix well enough to produce high-quality Pet Nat. The grapes are hand-harvested and pressed whole cluster before spontaneous fermentation in stainless steel. The Chardonnay is sourced from the Los Alamos Valley and is picked at even higher levels of acidity in order to help give the Pét Nat structure to rival Methode Champenoise wines. The Chardonnay along with the Molinara are both fermented separately in stainless steel before being added to the Cabernet Franc before bottling. No non-grape sugar was used to finish the fermentation in the bottle. Pet Nat Rose has become one of our most popular features of our Pet Nat program. Much different than typical sparkling wines, the finished wine has a unique raw character, loaded with energy and charisma.
Tastes like Oxnard plains strawberries, fresh rosemary, sourdough loaves and a hint of jade citrus mint tea, watermelon jolly rancher.
