Cowpunk

Organic Pet Nat Chardonnay 2021

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.

All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy!

Looking for a reasonable house wine ? No brainer . Floral , citrus and vibrant. I’m sure age would bring complexity. — 3 days ago

@Ron R If I had to guess, you had some aged semillon on that trip. 👍🏻

Hope Estate

Wollombi Brook Semillon 2018

Drinking this one just three years after the vintage, this is all fresh and crispy. The nose is Honeycrisp apple... On the palate, that apple gets really dry and crisp... Dried sage here too... Quite acidic which will be great for food pairings. — 2 months ago
