"Too much of anything is bad, but too much Fizz is just right."
Azienda Agricola Vittorio Bera e Figli, « Arcese » Bianco Vivace – Sant’Antonio di Canelli, Piemonte, Italy
ITALIAN PET-NAT STYLE! Delightfully quirky and characterful Piemontese white blend combining fresh grapes, peach skin, almonds and smoky minerals. The palate is lifted by palpable spritz and bright, citrus tang, finishing dry. The name 'Arcese' is a mash-up of Arneis and Cortese. Working organically (not certified).
Sokol Blosser « Evolution » Brut Sparkling - Dundee Hills, Oregon, USA
This Evolution Sparkling is designated as a Brut level of sweetness. It comes across as dry due to the bubbles and acidity in the finished wine, making a vibrant wine that dances on the palate. Aromatics of apricot, green apple and pear with hints of white peach and citrus. The mouth feel is slightly creamy with a light flintiness. Dry on the palate, it finishes crisp and clean.
Domaine Benoit Courault, “Eglantine” Pet Nat Rose - Faye d’Anjou, Loire, France
A pink-hued Pet Nat from Cabernet Franc and Grolleau Gris. Soft-spoken red fruit and a toasty richness on the nose, but mostly crunchy acidity and minerals on the palate.
Ai Casali, Prosecco DOC Frizzante - Refrontolo, Treviso,Italy
Delicious, easy drinking lightly sparkling style of Prosecco with a mischievous sapidity as an Italian might say. The nose suggests blanched almonds, white flowers and pear skin; the palate is soft and clean with apple and quince fruit flavours with a naturally off-dry finish.
Davenport, Pet Nat - Kent / Sussex, UK
The winery is at Limney Farm, an old dairy farm with buildings that made easy conversion for their new winemaking purpose. Fresh floral and white peach aromas, very clean and refreshing.
Champagne Val Frison, “Goustan” Brut Nature Blanc de Noirs - Champagne, France
Rich, expressive fruit notes of white cherry with a wonderfully savoury lip-smacking note all framed by a persistent Chablis like minerality and acidity that keeps everything in harmony.
