Petnat Rosé Petillant Natural Sparkling

The production of this unusual unique pink bubbly needs som explanation. Produced from 80% Gamay & 20% Grolleau picked in the cool early hours of the morning to protect the quality & fruit. The grapes are kept on the juice at 5ÝC for 10 days after which the juice is run off & yeast added to start the fermentation, which is slow to protect the fruit. After partial fermentation the wine is bottles into champagne type bottles where the fermentation is continues to 8% when the pressure in the bottle reaches 8 bar, where the process is naturally arrested leaving a natural residual sweetness. The wine then lies on the lees until March when the bottles are emptied into tank under seeb bar of pressure preserving the precious bubbles. It is then filted under pressure & refilled. It has a beautiful pale pink colour, an excellent fine mousse & a most attractive fruity flavour of stawberries, soft red fruits & a delicious crispness with only 8% alcohol. [read on...]
