Neighborhood, 2021 Sparkling Chardonnay ‘Pet Moon White’
Pét-nat is an abbreviation for “pétillant naturel”—a French term that roughly translates to “naturally sparkling.” Our 'Pét Moon White' is made from Chardonnay grapes grown on Pali Vineyard, immediately pressed into a stainless steel tank before going through a native fermentation with no additives in the winemaking in stainless steel. The grapes were barreled down into 100% neutral French oak before going through a native fermentation. Just before dryness when only a small amount of sugar remains, we bottled the fermenting juice and close the wine in crown caps. The fermentation finishes in bottle, giving this wine the bubbles we love! The juice is fermented using only native, natural yeast alive in the air and on the grapes.Nothing is added throughout the wine's elevage, resulting in a wine that is rich and complex with strong primary fruit flavors and acid, and remains unfined and unfiltered and non-disgorged.
Bright, tropical fruits along with fresh peach and wet stone aromas. Fine bubbles provide a creamy texture that is countered by the high acid in this wine. Fresh and vibrant, with hints of sea salt and lemon peel.
