THE VARIETY

Pet-Nat

"Pétillant Naturel"

Naturally Sparkling

This genre of sparkling wine, known as pétillant natural, or pét-nat, is made by a method so old that the French term for it is “methode ancestrale.” While classic champagne requires several years of ageing, pét-nats are released younger and often taste wilder and more open than champagne. Thanks to the bottle fermentation and natural yeasts, pét-nats display a range of exciting aromas. 


THE REGION

Great Southern

On the southern fringes of WA, this large and diverse area has five official sub-regions. Along the coast there is Denmark and Albany which have a maritime climate. Moving north, there is Mount Barker, Porongurup and Frankland River where altitude plays a role reaching up to 300m above sea level. The moderate to cool climate allows for ideal conditions for a diverse range of varietals including Shiraz, Riesling, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay.
