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

Swan Valley and Perth Hills

The Swan Valley is located 25 minutes north of Perth, Western Australia and is home to some of the oldest vineyards in Australia with the first commercial vintage being released in 1834 by Thomas Waters. The unique warm Mediterranean climate and nutrient rich, diverse soils coupled with alluvial plains has played a perfect host to a wide-range of plantings, including Verdelho, Shiraz, Grenache, Chardonnay and, of course, Chenin Blanc.
