For some time, Pet Nat wines were, well I don’t know how else to put it, Pet Not wines for me. With so many now in the market, it was only a matter of time before I would taste one, if not more, and I have tried a few now. Unfortunately, some go just that little bit too much the Pétillant-Naturel way, if you know what I mean. Those who get it right are worth trying and this one is definitely in the ‘give it a try’ category.
Made entirely from Chenin Blanc, it’s mainly citrus fruits providing the flavour on the palate along with a touch of pear, a hint of spice and a nice textural like feel to it too, with a nice little bit of fizz adding to the fun factor. It’s a fresh, light and zesty number that sits at just 11.0% alcohol. I think this particular Pet Nat will change a few minds, and taste buds, toward the style.
