About the Wine

The Pet-Nat party marches on!

Yangarra has had a couple cracks at this popular natural fizzy style now but the 2017 is comfortably the best yet. It's made from a blend of red Rhone varieties - as is Yangarra's way - with higher proportions of Carignan and Cinsault adding zip and freshness to the wine.

It's very pink, very vibrant and thanks to some late disgorgement, very clean too. Delicious, innovative bubbly from a fantastic producer.

About Yangarra

Yangarra Estate is one of a small group of powerhouse wineries to raise its head from the sandy soils of Blewitt Springs in McLaren Vale. Their wines are made entirely from an amazing old bush vine single vineyard, with the 2016 Halliday Winemaker of the Year, Peter Fraser, pulling the reins as winemaker. They are a certified biodynamic wine producer, and have even been named International Winery of the Year, twice!

They specialise in varieties found in the Rhone Valley. In the reds, their Grenache is as good as any in the land and is truly world class, with Shiraz and Mourvedre not far behind. The same applies to whites, the Roussanne expressions from Fraser’s experimentation with ceramic eggs are some of the most interesting in the country. In time, each of the 13 Rhone varieties will be grown on the Yangarra block.

A premium benchmark for the Blewitt Springs sub-region, and one of the country's modern day icon producers.

DDS review

Musk and turkish delight scents, some cranberry, and raspberry flavours. Little hint of campari. Soft herbal undertones and nice cleansing acidty. Spritely bubbles. Lots of fun to drink. - Different Drop Wine Team

Additional Info

From the Producer

“Pét’Nat” is short for petillant naturel (French). Petillant denotes lightly bubbly, and naturel refers to the fermentation by native yeasts from the sugars of the grape. We have honoured the natural process by not making any additions. These natural methods mean each bottle may vary a little, and there will be harmless yeast and crystal sediment in the wine. Serve chilled to minimise foaming.

VINEYARD INFORMATION

Our estate is devoted to southern Rhone varieties, and this wine is made from Grenache and three of the rarer varieties from this region: Carignan, Cinsaut and Graciano. All are planted on sandy soils. The vineyard is certified Biodynamic (certification # 11587) with Australian Certified Organic.

We have quite a practical approach, with our philosophy focused around healthy and alive soil, which involves no use of synthetic herbicides or fungicides, use of compost and biodynamic preparations, use of sheep in winter to graze under vine, and minimal mechanical soil disruption.

WINEMAKING INFORMATION

Hand-picked, destemmed and berry sorted, these berries were foot trodden and left to colour for approximately 3 hours and then lightly basket pressed.This juice was settled overnight, and racked by gravity to another vessel for natural fermentation. There have been no additions of yeast, enzyme, acid, tannin or sulphur. We bottle the fermenting juice at approximately 0.7 Baume (or 12 g/L Sugar) and the remaining sugar is fermented to create the small bubbles.

This vintage produced heavier amounts of tartrate crystals, and was causing the bottles to open very vigorously. Because of this, we chose to disgorge the wine, removing much of the solids normally associated with Pét’Nat. Bottled April 2017. Disgorged August 2017. Certified Biodynamic.

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.
