2016 Blanca Pet Nat

2016 Pet Nat Blanca, Pinot Gris

Tracey made about 23 cases of her Blanca as a Pet Nat. If you like the still version the bubbles are a must!

Anderson Valley

In 2016 we made our Pinot Gris three ways: Ramato, Blanca and sparkling (Pet Nat). Here we have the Blanca Pet Nat. The grapes from this bio-dynamic vineyard were foot stomped upon arrival at the winery and left to soak for 5 hours before pressing directly into bottle to finish fermentation. The Pinot Gris feremented in bottle for 10 months before disgorging.

Tasting Note:

This wine is an epic journey of fruitiness with the crisp sweetness of a pink lady apple, the subtle smoothness of lemon crème and vanilla bean, and a wild factor of tropical mango. Aromatics are their own entity entirely….wet stone, cardamom, grapefruit zest.
