Benjamin Bridge Pet-Nat 750ml bottle
Origin: Gaspereau, Nova Scotia, Canada
Blend*: "A proprietary blend of aromatic white grape varieties"
Style: a lightly sparkling, petillant naturel style - wild yeast, finishing fermentation in the bottle (or in this case, can!)
The nose is elegant and inviting with floral aromas interlaced with hints of citrus. The palate is bright and lively with delicate suggestions of grapefruit rind. Brisk and refreshing, like a cool coastal breeze.
Like all pétillant naturel wines, our pet nat is perceptibly cloudy or hazy when poured. This is because the wine finishes its primary fermentation in the 250-ml can itself with yeast sediment remaining. The cloudiness is a quality marker of this natural winemaking practice.
