About The Pack
The rise of Pet-Nats has been one of the more fascinating trends in Australian wine over the last five years and now it looks like they're here to stay.
This ancient form of sparkling is getting more refined each year in Aus. Here are six of the best we've come across recently. They're fun, fizzy and frisky and super exciting to drink.
This pack is great value and the best possible way to get familiar with Petillant Naturel!
2021 Between Five Bells Petillant Naturel
Between Five Bells; the team of David Fesq, Dr. Ray Nadeson & co. have brought to life some truly unique wines. They are unconventional in their make-up and winemaking, considered more a thing of enjoyment for the team - a vinous playground to play - in rather than a rigid, winemaking partnership.
The sense of freedom, experimentation and abandon with which they make the wines shines through in the juice in the bottle. Their Pet Nat is a bucketload of fun.
Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Moscato Giallo, Viognier & Pinot Gris, all in one fizzy, fruity delight - it's the ideal no-frills, whimsical treat to enjoy all Summer long.Read more about 2021 Between Five Bells Petillant Naturel
2021 BK Wines Petillant Natural Chardonnay
Brendan Keys isn't afraid to do things differently, and this Pet-Nat made from 100% Basket Range Chardonnay fruit, wild yeasts and 100% concrete-egg fermentation is certainly different!
Pet-Nats are perfect for unabashed drinking on a warm afternoon, and this one goes down particularly easy.
Don't be deceived by its cloudy exterior, this is bright, flavour-packed and fun to drink whether, in BK's words, "be it for a mid-morning brunch, a barbecue at dusk or a digestif at o’ dark thirty."Read more about 2021 BK Wines Petillant Natural Chardonnay
2021 Jamsheed Hippy Flip
A blend of Chardonnay, the King of Whites, and Fiano, which would have to be the jester.
The Chardonnay is in command here, with luscious aromas and flavours of nectarine and grapefruit coming through. The Fiano undercuts it all, providing a little bit of texture, a fair dose of crunchy apples and pears as well as some general frivolity. It's a sparkling wine with some lovely farm house cider vibes coming through.
The balance between the two grapes, though, it ultimately harmonious, and bound together by a delicate sherbet acidity and cleansing citrus finish. This is great on it's own, but would make a get Pet-Nat-Spritz.Read more about 2021 Jamsheed Hippy Flip
2021 Wildman Wine Astro Bunny Pet-Nat
The Astro Bunny is a playful Pet-Nat by the hands of Tim Wildman, MW.
This is an all sorts blend of Fiano, Arneis, Nero d’Avola and Zibibbo, from various vineyards across Adelaide Hills, McLaren Vale and Riverland.
Tim is emphatic that wine should fall into one of two categories: fun or fine. This wine sits firmly in the former category.
Astro Bunny is fun and fizzy, a little funky and positively loaded with personality. It's a spritzy wine that will charm any fan of this hugely popular wine style.Read more about 2021 Wildman Wine Astro Bunny Pet-Nat
2021 Bondar Pet Nat
Bondar joins the Pet Nat express, and, of course, they nail it, with this fun rendition of Grenache and Cinsault, that's as tasty as fresh summer pudding.
All the red berries are represented, as well as some tangy citrus, and there's plenty of pep to the petillance (flash word for bubbles). With lots of juicy concentration, this has a wine feel rather just a park and picnic random beverage.Read more about 2021 Bondar Pet Nat
2021 La Petite Vanguard Pet Nat Sangiovese Zibibbo
Can Michael Corbett make a bad wine? The answer seems to be a resounding 'no.' After coming out swinging with initial vintages, Vanguardist's second tier, La Petite Vanguard, are all about making great wines in and easy drinking, bistro style.
This pet nat is a fanciful blend of Sangiovese and Zibibbo (a.k.a Muscat of Alexandria), and it suits this wine to a tee. Tight and zippy, with a sherbet like acidity, this is as easy and friendly as pet nat gets. White cherries and fragrant stone fruit come through, with a pomegranate tartness on the end. Match that with the enticing musk, raspberry and spicy perfume and you've got an absolute winner.Read more about 2021 La Petite Vanguard Pet Nat Sangiovese Zibibbo
