Light & dry. Lively fruits. A great Pet Nat!
Tasting Notes: A fantastic Pet Nat made from a blend of Shiraz, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris. A lively mousse is accompanied by notes of watermelon, guava, dragonfruit and pomegranate. The wine went through the second fermentation in bottle without disgorgement so the lees remain in the bottle, mix them in with the wine by agitating the bottle before opening to give a creamy mouthfeel to the wine or leave to settle at the bottom for a clearer wine with a fresher taste.
Pyren is situated on an isolated patch of earth surrounded by state forest, farmland and the ever changing sky. Planted in 1999, established by brothers Brian & Kevyn Joy, and currently operated day to day by Graeme Miles in the Vineyard, and Leighton Joy in the winery. Pyren is farmed using organic principles. The house style is to meld the expression of very high quality fruit with integrity and artistic freedom. The endeavour to fine tune the best style for Pyren`s fruit is a continuous one that knows no bounds.
Pyrenees is a wine-producing region in the western part of Victoria, near the southern coast of Australia. Dotted with high-quality boutique wineries, the region is known for its cool-climate styles of Shiraz, as well as sparkling wines made in the traditional style from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. It is named for the Pyrenees mountain range in Europe, as early settlers thought that the hills here resembled those that separate France and Spain.
