The Fruit Pet-Nat Formerly Known As Cider 2020
Our fruit petnat that is predominantly based on macerations with red fruits. Despite mainly consisting of apples, the goal with this cuvee is to use apples as a base for macerations, to extract as much flavor from the berries, plums and grapes. We also added pears, to include a bit of residual sugar, for balancing out the cuvee. The result is a big velvety and fruity cuvee with notes of dark berries, and energetic acidity.
Based in central Malmö, Sweden, Frukstereo is a collaboration between Karl Sjöström & Mikael Nypelius, who both worked as sommeliers in fine dining throughout Scandinavia. Inspired by forward thinking friends, cider and natural wine producers, they decided to challenge the way wine and cider is perceived in the Nordic region.
With Fruktstereo, they want to create natural alcoholic beverages without additives, using sustainably grown Swedish produce without pesticides. Only the indigenous yeast in the fruit is used, with no manipulation that they do not see as natural.
