Russian River Valley

These grapes are from a 53 year old vineyard in the Russian River. When we were offered a chance to make Sparkling Pinot Meunier in 2017 the answer was not yes, it was HELL YES. This is one of three unique Pet Nats releasing in 2019. There is no question - this one is a keeper. Like all of our Pet Nats, this is a zero zero wine where we bottle before our spontaneous fermentation completes so it continues in the bottle making those delicate and delicious bubbles.

Tasting Note: Fresh and spunky, this Pet Nat does not apologize for its zesty flair. It’s got that zing of ruby grapefruit, that carefree spirit of a lemon shandy, and an aromatic edge from anise and eucalyptus notes. No sulfur, no frills or makeup -- this means that you won’t find any two bottles perfectly identical. Be sure to grab a bottle (or a dozen) for your besties who appreciate a unique thing.
