Hunter’s Wines Offshoot Sauvignon Blanc 2019 Pet Nat Style
This wine was bottled while still fermenting. The yeast residue is very obvious before opening. Closed with a crown seal - when opened the bottle eases out some gas pressure buildup. Once opened the effervescence builds - a bit like a Kombucha newly opened.
On the nose - varietal, fruity, herbaceous, tropical and organic. Sweet herbs and pineapple, lemon , grapefruit and barely sugar. The effervescence and mousse is quite intense, but seems well placed for the style. Flavours of citrus and preserved apple, some gentle ginger spice and hay, pineapple and fresh herb. This is a wine with a difference - balanced, fresh, well made with a refreshing palate appeal and finish. Drink now and through 2022.
