The grapes in this wine come from several smaller plots in the Trail Estate Vineyard and fermented entirely with skins-on. Consisting of 68% Riesling, 22% Geisenheim and 10% Gewürztraminer — with the exact ratio determined by whatever the harvest is in a given year. This is very much a field blend! Harvested first, the Geisenheim was wild-fermented on skins until dryness. Next, the Riesling grapes were harvested and crushed whole-cluster. These grapes were layered on the bottom of a tank and Gewürztraminer was destemmed on top. The already fermented Geisenheim was added on top of the Riesling and Gewürztraminer. It was pressed in a small basket press near the end of fermentation and bottled immediately without the addition of any yeasts, sugars or sulphurs — yielding naturally-ocurring bubbles. Nearly dry, complex, yet youthfully exuberant. Unfined and unfiltered. Serve chilled and handle gently. Drink young. Enjoy!
Note: some foaming-over is normal with Pet Nats. To minimize this make sure wine is well chilled and open cap slowly, wait 5-10 seconds and remove cap entirely.
