FREEMAN Pét Nat 2018 is the first minimal intervention natural wine in the FREEMAN portfolio.
FREEMAN Pét Nat 2018 is a seductive natural sparkling wine. A rose gold hue it opens with honeysuckle, ginger and brioche notes, then steps up to a creamy, savoury and mellow mid-palate with a lingering whimsical effervescence. Unadulterated and super-sippable!
The 2018 season was almost pitch-perfect – and conducive to a generous crop of late-ripening Rondinella grapes. The fully ripe bunches selected for this inaugural frizzante-style wine were harvested from the original Altura Vineyard and transferred to the winery within minutes for gentle basket-pressing. The free-run juice was drained and fermented naturally in small stainless steel vats courtesy of a vigorous wild yeast. The unfiltered wine was bottled (under crown seal) before the completion of fermentation (méthode ancestrale), guaranteeing a sprightly light effervescence.
