A new pét-nat made for Indigo by Leo Erazo from Rogue Vine. It’s a slightly richer, more gastronomic interpretation of the style, textured but with juicy ripe lemon acidity to keep things in check.
The grapes are hand harvested and fermented on skins in concrete. They’re basket pressed and bottled under crown cap before they have fermented to dry, undergoing a second fermentation in bottle, to give a gentle pétillance.
The vineyards are situated in Itata, an old and until recently forgotten viticultural valley 400 km south of Santiago. The Moscatel bush vines are over 100 years old, they’re planted mid-slope on a thin layer of clay over granitic rock.
