Pet Nat - naturally sparkling red wine
Tasting Notes: Intense purple, red in colour. Powerful aromas of pommegranate, blackcurrant and blackberry with slightly vinous notes. The aromas all carry through to the palate - deliciously lively, sweet & dry at the same time, perfectly balanced. It is both round and fresh that has a long lasting dry, clean finish. Pet Nat - or Petillante Natural roughly translates to naturally sparkling. Just like champagne the juice is bottled whilst still undergoing fermentation, the French call this 'Method Ancestral' and the Italians call it 'Col Fondo'. If you see a crown cap closure on the bottle 9like an old coke bottle), then it is probably Pet Nat.
