2014 Lily's- PET NAT

Pétillant Naturel

2014 Chardonnay, Lily's Cuvée

Anderson Valley

Our 5th year making bubbles, our Petillant Naturel (Pet Nat) is made from (mostly) organic Chardonnay grapes. We do not add sugar, yeast or anything else. We whole cluster press our hand harvested grapes to tank. Fermentation begins spontaneously and continues until near dry when we bottle under crown cap. Months later we disgorge by hand to remove most of the heavy yeast sediment and reduce the pressure. The result is a delightful, too easy to drink, very much alive, sparkling Chardonnay with a touch of sweetness. Drink early for a touch of sweetness, hold onto it for more bubbles.
