A big thank you to Fourth Wave Wines for this sample of the 2021 Cowpunk Pet Nat Chardonnay.
It falls in the category of a natural wine. Plus it’s also organic and vegan friendly with no added preservatives. It’s from a single site and is small batch with a $30 price tag.
It looks like cloudy apple juice in the glass and pretty much smells like Granny Smith apples 🍏 too - super crisp and enticing. Alongside the juicy apples there’s some pretty florals and zesty citrus peel. Dry and delicious. Tastes great and love the packaging.

From Magnum and shared with elder brother and sister and their spouses. We had a magnum of the 2001, 414 weeks ago on Delectable and it was a “Wow” wine giving it 96 points. This 2002, 8 years later was unfortunately a little underwhelming. This Cuvée is a good example of an excellent wine which can be cellared too long. Back in the day I had many 750ml bottles of the 2002 which were all excellent. I thought being in magnum would carry the day for the 20 years of cellar time but it was all a bit tired. It was still spicy and savoury but the red fruits had dried out largely. Luckily the family enjoyed it but I was happy to drink this when we did. — 6 days ago
