2021 Vino Volta Methode Ancestrale Chenin Blanc
Methode ancestrale is the oldest technique of getting bubbles into wine and is also referred to as petillant naturale.
Ferment finishes in bottle using up the last of the grape derived sugars and naturally gains some bubbles. This traps in all the fresh fruit and ferment character and also means that these wines have absolute minimum sulphites with only yeast derived sulphites being present. Chenin Blanc was sourced from an Old Gingin vineyard of loam and sand and a Swan Valley vineyard also of loam and sand. Whole bunch pressed. Low turbidity ferments keeping it clean... Lemon sherbet, grapefruit pith and minerality. Bright and clean fun.
