2018 Small-Lot Riesling Pétillant-Naturel

A single-vineyard pétillant-naturel (French for “natural sparkling”) – a.k.a. “pét-nat” - made from estate-grown, organic and biodynamic Riesling grapes. Crafted using the ancestral method, this wine fermented with wild yeasts and was bottled before completion of the primary fermentation without any additions such as secondary yeasts and sugars. Fermentation continued inside the bottle, capturing the gentle CO2 bubbles. Just 383 bottles (750 mL) produced.
