The party is back! Our pink pet nat brings together red and white – Vermentino and Nero d’Avola. Traditionally grown hundreds of miles apart, this naturally sparkling, rag tag blend of grapes from the Riverland will bless your palate with its spritzy energy, sweet dark fruit, and bracing acidity.
Each variety was picked and fermented separately, the final wine was blended and bottled just prior to the Nero d’Avola finishing ferment to create the Petillant Naturel style sparkling. The Nero d’Avola turns the good times up to 11 with its super bright red fruit cutting through the citrus, stonefruit push of the Vermentino. Hazy, bright pink in the glass, the nose gives wonderful yeastiness, super clean, like walking into the kitchen while mum is baking fruit toast. The fine spritz just accentuates the fun vibes, a wine made for all-day and all-night crushing.
