100% Bianco d'Alessano
From the winemaker: "This year’s Bianco Pet Nat so bright and clean – intense tropical and citrus fruit bursting from the glass, it just screams drink me. Perfect beady, fuzzy fizz pops in the mouth, where the fruits are present but increasingly we see more of the herbaceous, savoury, moreish characters come through. Fresh, persistent, delicious – a wine made for sunshine savouring.
Fermented in stainless steel with wild vineyard yeast, the wine was bottled under crown seal to finish ferment, resulting in the Petillant Naturel, lightly sparkling style."
This is made from one of the only plantings of Bianco d'Alessano outside of its home in the Apulia region of southern Italy. Ashley Ratcliff's Ricca Terra Farms seems the ideal place for it to grow.
