Sauvignon Blanc & Riesling Pet Nat & Orange wine
Bubbles! Only 900 bottles of our Pét-Nat (natural sparkling wine) were made in 2017. Predominately Sauvignon blanc selected from three different cuvées. Barrel fermented, skin fermented and carbonic fermented. A small amount of Riesling juice was added for the secondary in-bottle ferment.
Colour: Mandarin juice with a fine effervescence.
Nose: Super fresh and fragrant aromas of honey, florals and stonefruits, alongside a subtle smell of bread dough.
Taste: Lifted flavours of white and green stonefruits, mandarin, grapefruit, lemongrass and rosemary.
Palate: Gentle skin fermented phenolic bitterness is balanced by light effervescence and fresh acidity. Vibrant and persistent with a dry, citrus finish.
The TINCAN promise:
- No additives
- No sulphur
- No animal products (vegan friendly)
- No filtration—the cloudiness in the bottle is intentional. It made up of a small amount of natural grape and yeast residue and is used as a natural antioxidant.
All of their winemaking processes are by hand, including bottling, labelling and waxing the bottles.
