Eminence Pinot Meunier Pet Nat NV
A crowd-pleasing style of pet nat with all the hallmarks of charismatic pinot meunier. Undisgorged, (minimal sediment), punchy acid and fine fizz. Winemaking: Both the 2021 and 2020 parcels were early picked, a mix of machine and hand harvest. Both were barrel fermented on full solids, with no yeast or enzyme addition. The 2021 wine was aged in neutral barrels for a further 9 months. Blended, settled, and refermented in bottle with help of a partial sugar addition and yeast culture. Rested 3 months prior to release. 110 dozen produced.
Crafted from 100% pinot meunier, this pet nat has red fruit and marmalade-like aromas. With gentle, creamy fizz, the palate has bright, lifted fruit flavours and typically punchy acidity from the meunier. In the wild world of pet nat, it's on the tamer end of things: simple, fresh & fruit driven.
