our first pét-nat
Experimentation is what we do best. We are excited to announce our first pétillant-naturel, a sparkling Roussanne produced using the ancestral method.
We are so excited to finally announce our first ever pétillant-naturel, released under the Foundry Vineyards label. Made with the methode ancestral, as opposed to the methode champenoise, this wine is a 100% Roussanne single-fermentation sparkling sourced from Summit View Vineyard. Light straw colored and crisp, this refreshing sparkling has aromas of candied pineapple, lemon balm and honeycomb, and a bright clean green apple flavor.
With only 50 cases produced, this wine is extremely limited and will be released to our club only on April 6th, 2018. Pre-orders available beginning April 1st, 2018.
pét project is focused on creating low-intervention wines using the ancestral method, the oldest process for creating sparkling wines. The French refer to these wines as pétillant-naturel (naturally sparkling) or pét-nat for short. These wines capture the liveliness of fermentation just before it is completed. The remaining CO2 in bottle results in a youthful sparkling wine.
