Among the best examples of the style in Australia.

About The Wine
Few producers pushing the Pet-Nat envelope as far as Paul Starr at Sassafras in the Canberra district.
He never sits still, constantly refining his take on the ancient sparkling technique. And the results are seriously impressive. The 2017 Sassafras Chardonnay Savagnin Ancestral is one of his best to date.
Ned Goodwin MW gave it huge wraps in the 2019 Halliday Wine Companion rating it a massive 96 points - the higest score for any Pet-Nat in the country.
Perhaps a leading producer in this wine style for Australia - if you'd like to try some 'serious' Pet-Nat, then the offerings from Sassafras are an excellent place to kick off.
