Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"Our first ever Pet-Nat. A co-ferment of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir that grow together in one block at our oldest hillside vineyard, Netherwood. Coral on the eye! Watermelon, tangelo fish just smoked and hints of nori on the nose. On the palate - strawberry, tangelo rind and soy sauce. Full but fine texture. Effervescent.

This wine is grown at the Netherwood Vineyard which lies in the foothills of the Teviotdale ranges in Omihi, North Canterbury. This block is 1.0 hectare and was planted in 1986 on a south facing hillside and established without irrigation. The soils are classified as Waipara Greensand which is a green grey richly glauconitic sandstone. The vines are mass selection of Pinot Noir and the Chardonnay is thought to be cuttings of Mendoza. The vine density is 4500 vines per hectare and the vineyard is unirrigated.

100% foot crushed and then whole bunch basket pressed over 24 hours. No settling, fermentation with yeast propagated from a vineyard starter, in a stainless steel tank. Fermenting wine was bottled on April 21 2017. Fermentation was completed in bottle and then aged on lees.  Hand riddling was undertaken from Dec 22- Jan 5 2018. 

120 bottles were hand disgorged and topped with zero dosage on January 26th 2018. A unique and rare wine from a very unique vineyard."
