Pinot Noir, Pét-Nat, Russian River Valley, 2020
“Let’s Party” is a radiant new wine that we think you will love. Following on our successful release a few weeks ago of our “Grenache Nouveau” called “Go Your Way”, this new wine is our first take on a “pétillant naturel” or “Pét-Nat” of Pinot Noir from the Bacigalupi vineyard.
“Let’s Party” was crafted by hand in an ancient sparkling wine process resulting in this feisty, young, fruit forward, low tannin, playful way of revisiting the past. Full cluster fermentation. Cherry notes on the palette. Orange blossom, Indian baking spices, high-tone cherry, dusty tannins on the finish. A delightful wine.
The last step is to riddle the sediment from the native yeast to the neck of the bottle, freeze it and disgorge the ice “plug”. All of this is done by hand, so very time consuming and labor intensive. But the result, a delicious Pétillant Naturel of Pinot Noir (frequently referred to as a “Pét Nat”) is worth it. If we hadn’t already committed these bottles, we probably would have just kept them for ourselves!
