Anna Dry Rosé Blend

Steely rhubarb and berry aromas. Lively acidity right off the bat, lemon meringue, earthy strawberry, and a long finish. — 9 days ago

Rodica

Refosk

Popped and poured. Deep garnet color with an opaque core. Horse blanket, fresh cut prairie grass, lavender, dark cherry, and underbrush on the nose. The palate was montmorency cherries, grapefruit, and minerals (think Gerolsteiner). High acid. Medium (+?) tannin. Long finish. Killer with food. — 6 days ago

TGIF!! We’re springing into the weekend with some Pét-Nat, an abbreviation for Pétillant Naturel. This one is made from 100% Blaufränkisch grapes 🍇, in a rosé style, hailing from the Haloze Hills of Lower Styron (Štajerska), Slovenia. 🇸🇮

Pétillant Natural, meaning ‘naturally sparkling’ in French, is a sparkling wine that was bottled and sealed during the fermentation process (prior to its completion) aided by wild, naturally occurring yeasts (no additives).

The fermentation process produces carbon dioxide, among other things like alcohol and heat, causing bubbles (from the CO2) to get trapped in the bottle. 🍾

Pét-Nat tends to be a lighter, fresher, more fruit-forward, and youthful version of other sparkling wines, especially compared to Champagne. It’s meant to be consumed young.

The bubble intensity of Pét-Nat tends to be less than Champagne, too, resembling more of a sparkling cider or beer, at least to me. 🍻

This wine is a beautiful peach hue, with a delicate haze, and has aromas and flavors of raspberry, strawberry, cherry blossom, wet stone, sourdough, beer, and almond paste. 💕👌👍

It’s dry, refreshing, and lively and offers delicate bubbles. In sum: it’s delish! 😋
