Wildman Astro Bunny Pét-Nat 2021
Wildman Astro Bunny is such a fun wine! So far out of mainstream, it's got a cartoon of a stoned rabbit on the label. Nectarine orange colour. Explosive peachy and floral aromas. Frothy mouthfuls of pink grapefruit and zingy lime with a smashable wetness that provides great gluggability.
30% Zibibbo, 26% Fiano, 24% Arneis, 17% Nero d'Avola and 3% Mataro. The fruit comes from South Australian vineyards in Adelaide Hills, Mclaren Vale and Riverland.
24 hours skin contact. Pétillant-Naturel (natural sparkling) is an ancient, natural form of fizzy wine which is bottled before the completion of primary fermentation.
Chill down, gently turn the bottle upside down to mix in the fine sediment before opening!
AWARDS & ACCOLADES
"Pale, cloudy, pinky orange. Like peach skin. A medley of fresh fruits and a really attractive sour freshness. Dry, fruity, slightly mad, lots of fun but seriously well made. Clever." — Julia Harding MW.

"Tim recommends gently up-ending the bottle before serving to integrate the fine sediment. It makes for a lightly cloudy glassful, but that doesn’t matter because the mouthful is delicious. It’s aromatic, full of grapey, floral, blossom notes - a truly fruity friend. Red apple and orange rind, pear and juicy peach, with a round and frothy texture and a long floral finish. A blend of zibibbo, fiano, arneis, nero d’Avola and mataro sourced predominantly from the Adelaide Hills. Fun and moreish!"
