2018 Lily's- PET NAT

2018 Lily's Pet Nat, Sparkling Chardonnay

Zero-zero, lip smacking delicious bubbles. Fried chicken + Lily's Pet Nat = Happy Place. Get it while it lasts!

Anderson Valley

Pet Nat, short for pétillant naturel, can be made from any grape variety (ours is Chardonnay) and is a simpler and ancient way to make sparkling wine. In its purest form (as ours is) the ingredients are limited to grapes. After spontaneous fermentation begins, but before it is complete, the wine is bottled where fermentation continues creating delicious bubbles. We made our first Lily’s in 2011 and seven years later it remains our go to wine for brunch, lunch, picnics and beach days. It is a sipper made for al fresco dining, preferably with your shoes off.

Tasting Note:

An aromatic explosion of orchard fruit and floral notes immediately grabs attention. With air more earthy notes, bright citrus fruit and a touch of spiciness develop. This wine is extremely gulpable, with silky texture and a touch of sweetness that is nicely supported by a backbone of acidity.
