2019 Pet Nat
Our winemaker is a big fan of this bubbly natural wine and she’s thrilled to finally have one at The Roost. Pét Nat, or Pétillant Naturel, is an ancient method of making sparkling wine. Georgian Bay Chardonnay from Four Wheel Farm @fourwheelfarm near Creemore is the perfect fruit for our VQA Pet Nat, which is the first instalment in our Terroir series of wines.
Expect it to be crisp, fruity and incredibly fresh with a hint of biscuit from the lees. What makes this wine extra special is that it’s a near-perfect example of natural winemaking: using a wild ferment there are almost no sulphites or intervention in the cellar.
The wine was hand bottled with its lees and hand labelled by the winemaker - only 50 cases are available.
