Pét Nat has boomed in popularity over the last 12 months. It’s a ‘very cool’ bubbles to be sipping on. Short for Pétillant-naturel which in French means ‘natural sparkling’, they are made in a more rustic way than champagne that produces a sparkling wine which is traditionally cloudy, unfiltered, and finished with a crown cap closure. The method for making Pét Nats is called ‘méthode ancestrale’.
Having tried a number of wines from Ngeringa Vineyards last year, I was excited to include their 2018 ‘Uncultured Pét Nat’ in this month’s TC Wine Club box in collab with The Wine Gallery. Have any of the club members cracked it yet? I’d love to know your thoughts!
It comes from South Australia’s Adelaide Hills region and it’s safe to say Ngeringa have made a name for themselves as a small batch biodynamic wine producer.
In the glass it’s a cloudy white to peach to orangey shade, giving off major sunset vibes. The nose makes me think of peach juice, spearmint or something rather cooling and grapefruit rind. While in the mouth it’s definitely dry yet it has this grapefruit tart turn strawberry lemonade-ness to it with a pinch of salt. A unique and very interesting bubbles that has a refreshment factor of 100+
