Frankly This Wine Was Made By Bob - Pet Nat 2021
A blend of predominately Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc, with an addition of Gewurztraminer. Like the 2019 vintage it was blended to give you a wine that tastes a bit like alcoholic solo. So crushable, so complex and joyful. All of this fruit is grown on the organic vineyards of Cargo Road and Boree Lane in the cool climate of Orange.
The Pet Nat this year was originally a mistake. A still wine was bottled too early before the primary fermentation was complete. Therefore it had some residual sugar that fermented under cork to make a lightly sparkling wine. The takeaway from this is that the grapes were not picked too early, as the intent was to make a still wine, but a fortunate mistake resulted in an iridescent wine with massive flavour!
