Notes from the Winemaker, Corry Craighill:
After seeing the 2018 product, we decided to have another go at the Tannat Pét-Nat. A bit lighter color and body, this wine is a great first release for our 2019 wines! Tannat is a perfect candidate for this sparkling because it retains acidity throughout ripening. To create carbonation, the wine is bottled during alcoholic fermentation. CO2 is a byproduct of fermentation, so the bubbles are trapped inside the bottle upon completion of fermentation. Method Ancestral produces a more rustic style of fizz than other sparkling methods. Drink soon! It is meant to be enjoyed young.
Notes of strawberry, watermelon, raspberry, and that late spring feeling. Light body with slight effervescence.
