A Pétillant Naturel is made by the méthode ancestrale, predating the méthod champenoise or traditionelle. A wine produced by the méthode ancestrale means that it was bottled prior to fully completing its fermentation with the natural sugars and wild yeast present in the grape must creating a lightly sparkling wine or “pétillant naturel” in bottle. Unlike a sparkling wine made by the méthode champenoise, the resulting lees of a pétillant – naturel remain undisgorged and unfiltered and, therefore, the wine is perceptibly cloudy.
Why a 250-ML can?
We sought to craft a “first of its kind” — a premium naturally-lightly sparkling wine in a lightweight and sustainable single-serving format for more laid-back, individual enjoyment.
“The nose is elegant and inviting with floral aromas interlaced with hints of citrus. The palate is bright and lively with delicate suggestions of grapefruit rind. Brisk and refreshing, like a cool coastal breeze.”
With our 250-ml Pet Nat we’ve accomplished a technical feat that is most likely an international first. Due to its unpredictability, can fermentation is uncharted territory with only some of the world’s rarest beers having attempted the challenge. We’ve accomplished it with our first attempt — the wine finishes dry with the grapefruit rind notes that are distinct and highly drinkable.
Like all pétillant naturel wines, our pet nat is perceptibly cloudy or hazy when poured. This is because the wine finishes its primary fermentation in the 250-ml can itself with yeast sediment remaining. The cloudiness is a quality marker of this natural winemaking practice.
