2019 Minim Floyd Pet Nat
Notes from the legend Tim that makes the wine...
So during the heat of the 2019 vintage i made the call to press a bin of dry grown early pick Metcalfe Cabernet with a bin of Viognier, picked the same day from up the road at Redesdale. The idea being to take a couple of generally unpopular grape varieties and disguise them as some waaaay sexier than they would otherwise appear. Rose-like press, fermented in barrel and tank….heaps of acid from the early pick but enough flavour to keep it fruity. Chilled down just before the end of ferment and bottled with enough sugar left to finish ferment in bottle, giving a delicious yeasty texture and light fizz. Full of pink grapefruit, mandarin peel and soft aromatic spice. A super satisfying guzzler.
