2017 Biodynamic Bubbly/750ml

2017 Biodynamic Bubbly/750ml

Bright straw with green glints and the haze characteristic of Pet Net.  Candied lemon peel, golden delicious apple and fermentive aromas.  Crisp on attack, with volume and texture developing from the mousse.  Flavours of lemon and golden apple replay, along with fresh bread.  A pleasant bitterness, tangy acid and earthy yeast notes make for a long refreshing finish.  This moderately effervescent wine is refreshing and begs to be enjoyed among friends whether out on a sunny patio, or dreaming of the warm weather to come.  

Michael Godel - 91 Points

A change of course sees the Southbrook Pet-Nat styled sparkling wine as 100 per cent chardonnay with a net result of somewhereness captured. So clean and so fresh for an Ontario rifermentato in bottiglia bubble, in fact it's one of the most charming and eloquent examples anywhere. Reminds me of Camilla Rossi Chauvenet's zur lie corvina example at Massimago in Valpolicella. This biodynamic col fondo may be bottled on its lees but is never a question of stuffing as much in there as is pressure-presumably possible. In this case it's just right. This will be one of the great summer of 2018 refreshers. Così grande, così perfetto. Drink 2018-2019.

Tasting Notes
IN THE GLASS: Bright straw with green glints and the haze characteristic of Pet Net. Candied lemon peel, golden delicious apple and fermentive aromas. Crisp on attack, with volume and texture developing from the mousse. Flavours of lemon and golden apple replay, along with fresh bread. A pleasant bitterness, tangy acid and earthy yeast notes make for a long refreshing finish. This moderately effervescent wine is refreshing and begs to be enjoyed among friends whether out on a sunny patio, or dreaming of the warm weather to come. Ideal with oysters, bloomy rind cheeses, prosciutto and salty snacks of all kinds.
Vineyard Notes
IN THE ORCHARD: Certified Biodynamic & Organic Chardonnay Grapes From Our Estate Varietal: 100% Estate Chardonnay Harvested: October 13 & 14, 2017
Production Notes
IN THE WINERY: Made from 100% estate grown biodynamic and organic Chardonnay grapes, a natural fermentation began in tank and then finished in the bottle. This style is known as Ancestral in France, or “Col Fondo” in Prosecco, or Pet Nat in the natural wine circles. The result is that the trapped CO2 provides bubbles, and the post-fermentation lees remain in the bottle to add complexity. Naturally fermented and made with no sulphites or other additives. Bottled with its lees.
