This Chardonnay is harvested very early in order to retain high acidity. The wine is pressed and racked
directly onto hops in a large stainless steel tank. The fermentation occurred naturally and lasted 15 days before being racked off of its lees. We reserved a small portion of the fermenting juice in a temperature-controlled tank, which was added back to the wine before bottling. No non-grape sugar was used to finish the fermentation in the bottle.
Dry Hop Pet Nat was our first foray into the Pet Nat revolution. The creation of this wine requires perfect timing. It must be captured in bottle at just the right level of natural sugar so it is perfectly carbonated upon release.
