Description

Sem Igual Pet Nat Rosé 2021

Sem Igual Pet Nat Rosé is a pure pet-nat style wine. Cloudy pink to orange in colour. Expressive aromas of strawberries, raspberry and currant. These fruity notes follow through to the bubbly and medium-bodied palate.

50% Baga and 50% Touriga Nacional. The fruit for this wine comes from north facing vineyards in single slop configuration in Vinho Verde, Portugal. The vines grow on a soilbed of granite/gravel and experience mild climate with low temperature amplitudes (without harsh winters and summers). The vineyards sit at an altitude of 200–300 metres. Vines between 4–70 years old are trained in ascending unilateral cord and the Pergola training system. 

To avoid intensive colour extraction, soft and quick pressing of the grapes with dry ice (it cools and protects the masses with CO2). Fining of the must before fermentation using gelatin from vegetal origin. Fermentation at a controlled temperature of 14–16°C with a small quantity of bentonite being poured in at the half-way point to stabilize the proteins and reduce the content of suspended lees. At this point, the temperature was lowered to decrease the activity of the yeast and allow the lees to settle in the vat. When the sugar content reached 20–25g/l, bottling of the wine through clean valves (so it is not in contact with any lees) and without the addition of secondary yeasts or sugars. 100% bottle fermentation with total lees. No added sulfites. No filtering.
