2018 Chateau Tour des Gendres Petillant Naturel - Bergerac, France
This fun, approachable Pet-Nat is a blend of 70% Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Chenin blanc from Bergerac in the South-west of France. Grapes are gently pressed and
ferment in stainless steel vats with indigenous yeast. Following the Ancestral Method, the wine is bottled when fermentation is about 2/3 complete, with minimal filtration and no added sufites. Light body and relatively low in alcohol, it offers wonderful aromas and flavors of green apple and pear with a touch of honey balanced by brisk acidity. The presence of lees in teh bottle adds compexity and a subtle pungent grassy note. An ideal alternative for Prosecco lovers, enjoy with cheese, charcuterie and crudite.
