My first sip of wine on my recent trip to Perth was this Bratty Nat Pét Nat from Marri Wood Park. Pét Nat aka Pétillant-Naturel describes the method for making this type of sparkling wine, it’s more rustic than making a bottle of champagne for example. You’ll typically find these bottles of bubbles are cloudy, unfiltered and capped with a crown seal (like a beer bottle cap). They are very trendy at the moment, especially in WA I’ve noticed.
Marri Wood Park are a chemical free and biodynamic winery in Yallingup, Margaret River. You can visit them when you’re next in Margs, though book ahead as visits are by appointment only.
A big thanks to Naomi aka Travelling Piccolo for sharing this bottle with me. She bought at City Wine recently. And she told me that it’s named after the winery owner’s daughter, Nat. Plus the label is made from recycled cotton which is a lovely touch.
It was a lovely welcome back to Perth!
So how did we find it?
Well on the eye it’s a cloudy yellow-beige colour. On the nose it’s like a bowl full of apples with a slight chalkiness to it. While in the mouth those apple and maybe a bit of pear flows through with an almost syrupy texture and a lick of pineapple. Bucket loads of flavour and nice and refreshing.
All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy!
