Pet-Nat Chardonnay 2022
Fresh, crisp and refreshing like being kissed by the ocean spray in the sunshine. The perfect balance of acid and body, drink this wine chilled on a hot day and you'll never look back.
We ate with: Nothing else wanted or needed
We listened to: Tents being assembled
The first of our two champagne-grape Pét Nats is – very much like its Pinot Noir Pét Nat sibling – a powerfully pure example of the variety at its heart, in this case the Chardonnay top-layer of the champagne pyramid.
Aromas of brioche stuffed with custard and spring flowers; flavours of lime zest, honeysuckle, cooked apples and just the faintest hint of bitter pollen. A honeycomb finish this is as long as it is attractive will ensure repeat visitation.
100% Basket Range Chardonnay. Whole-bunch pressed to concrete ‘egg’ fermenter. Fermented until nearly dry. No added sulphites.
