Elkhorn Peak's inaugural sparkling wine release!
We harvested on September 27, 2019 at 7 A.M. Grapes were delivered to the winery, desteemed, pressed, and pumped into a stainless-steel tank to begin a 10-day fermentation. On October 8th, while the wine was actively fermenting, we bottled. Over the next 6 months, the wine would rest in bottle, neck down, to finish fermentation and separate from the sediment (lees). On April 10, 2020, we disgorged the Pet Nat, removing the sediment from the bottle, and recapping it. The wine rested in bottle for an additional 2 months before being hand-labeled and released. A true labor of love....we hope you enjoy!
Aromas of lemon and brioche on the nose. On the palate, green apple, pear, a hint of lemon and a kiss of sweetness. Medium-bodied, well balanced, with a creamy finish. A fun, refreshing summer treat. Serve chilled.
Pairs with cheeses like brie, gouda, gruyere and chèvre. Excellent served alongside fried chicken, BBQ, and spicy food. Fruit or nut-based desserts pair well too.
