2016 Pét Nat Trincadeira
This Pet Nat was developed as a result of Patritti's winemakers experimenting with the ancient petillant naturel winemaking process. This technique involves the wine being bottled before the primary fermentation has finished, creating a simple, rustic, lightly sparkling wine. Cloudy, unfiltered, and sealed with a champagne-style cork and wire, each bottle is a unique reflection of the winemaking process.
Trincadeira was selected for its vibrant savoury sweet flavour profile and acid structure; two traits that can counter the 'funkiness' this winemaking process can create. The naturally high acid levels provide freshness and lift the sweeter fruit flavours.
Aromas of wild strawberry, cherry and red liquorice flow through to the palate with cranberry, red currants and a slight herbal note to add interest. Off sweet and lightly effervescent its delightfully fresh and zippy with a long, lingering finish.
