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!
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.
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.
