BK Wines Pet Nat Chardonnay 2021
BK Wines Pet Nat Chardonnay is so charming and blissfully uncomplicated (it's like Champagne minus the fuss and trouble). Beautifully settled and clear with just a dusting of lees at the base of the bottle, this Pét Nat Chardonnay has all of the flowers-and-biscuits character and foamy mousse of a good blanc de blanc. Proof that there is no shortage of interest and beauty to be found in simplicity.
100% Chardonnay. The fruit comes from a high, steep, organic site in Basket Range North (Adelaide Hills, Australia) that was planted in 1989 to four varieties and has thick sandstone, quartz and red clay soils at 350 meters elevation.
Hand harvesting of the fruit. Whole-bunch pressing to concrete ‘egg’ fermenters. Wild yeast fermentation until nearly dry.
