Jewett Creek Vineyard, Columbia Gorge AVA
100% Pinot Noir Petillant-Naturel, sparkling wine
Hand-harvested and whole cluster pressed. Aromas of watermelon rind, grapefruit, guava, and slate. The flavor is light and dry, leaning toward grapefruit and pomelo orchards with hints of toasted walnuts.
Delicate bubbles dance in the glass in this natural sparkling wine. Producing a Pet-Nat is a careful calculation of bottling at exactly the right time to lock in a tiny amount of sugar that will continue to ferment in the bottle and produce light carbonation when the wine is finished. This natural carbonation process creates a small amount of sediment in the bottle which does not interfere with the quality of the wine and adds layers of texture and flavor.
