If all things made sense in this world, everybody would love Pét Nat. At its charming best, it is Champagne minus the fuss and trouble – and if we’ve learned nothing else over the recent past, surely we’ve learned the value of keeping life blissfully uncomplicated. And by that we do mean both: lose the convolutions, retain the bliss. Beautifully settled and clear with just a dusting of lees at the base of the bottle, our Pét Nat Chardonnay has all of the flowers-and-biscuits character and foamy mousse of a good blanc de blanc. Proof that there is no shortage of interest and beauty to be found in simplicity. While it isn’t our intention to tease, this is very much a summertime wine, though we dare you to control yourself and hold back a few bottles until summer arrives.
100% Basket Range Chardonnay. Whole-bunch pressed to concrete ‘egg’ fermenter. Fermented until nearly dry.
