2019 Wildman Wine Piggy Pop Pet-Nat

McLAren Vale, SA

Full-throttle Nero d'Avola-based Pet Nat from the Pet Nat Wildman himself!



About The Wine

The Piggy Pop (formerly Heavy Petting) Pet Nat is the wild creation of notable UK Master of Wine, Tim Wildman.

Each year Tim makes the pilgrimage from the UK to South Australia to pursue his bespoke Pet Nat project.

This Nero d'Avola fruit is hand harvested from a great lovingly-farmed vineyard in McLaren Vale by viticulturist Sue Trott.

Piggy is a fun times wine, filled to bursting point with fresh berries and licorice, a fine creamy mousse and refreshing acidity. 

Such a fun wine with as much personality as its creator.

About Petillant Naturel

Pétillant-Naturel (natural sparkling) is an ancient, natural form of fizzy wine which is bottled before the completion of primary fermentation.

As the yeasts eat the sugar inside the bottle, turning it into alcohol, the yeast bugs excrete carbon dioxide (CO2) which causes the juice to become fizzy. Pet-Nats are typically released young and fresh, often within months of being picked and can be made from any grape variety.

This method of winemaking is known as méthode ancestral.

Additional Info

From The Producer

All change for 2019! New vineyard, new label. We’ve decided to double down on the fun this year and turn our red pét-nat into a fruit driven ruby coloured rosé pét-nat, with a new name and a new fruit source. We’ve moved to a premium vineyard in McLaren Vale owned by renowned viticulturist Sue Trott for our new source of Nero d’Avola. Meticulous viticulture and a stunning vineyard location in the McLaren Flat sub-region of McLaren Vale has allowed us to step up the fruit quality this year and it really shows in the bottle, with the Nero character and fruit power really popping out of the glass - hence Piggy POP!

Expert Reviews

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Sweet berries and plums, a cavalcade of exotic spice, dark cocoa and licorice root floods from the glass. The fizz is fins and creamy, a light touch of natural yoghurt and a tart finish of cranberry and blueberries. Delish. - Different Drop Wine Team

DDS review

“Glistening cherry red with foaming jewel-like bubbles, the aromas explode out of the glass with a riot of red fruits, spice and liquorice. The palate is ever so juicy with a snap and crackle of Nero acidity on the finish to keep it mouthwatering and fresh. Serve cold, no need to shake before opening. Delicious on it’s own as an aperitif, the perfect weapon to demolish a charcuterie board or treat it like liquid cranberry sauce and drink with turkey or pork pies but always with gusto.” - Tim Wildman MW

No our pricing is aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. How does the price match work?

Everyday Low & Consistent Pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.
