Little Reddie Pat Nat Sparkling Colbinabbin Nebbiolo 2020Regular price $38.00
"There are lovely florals here but a little wild. Paper daisies, cherry blossom, just dried roses and wattle. Smells like Central Victorian bush floor that's drying out mid spring.
I find this wine takes a glass or so to unwind after opening.
Fruits pink and red. Cranberry, dried raspberry and pink lady apples augmented with a lovely crunchy acidity. The wine holds a subtle weight on the palate and finishes very long with acidity, fruit and rusty soils all twisting, all contrasting and moving together at once."
Pat Underwood - Winemaker
Barrel fermented 100% Nebbiolo, something new and not seen before as a sparkling but WOW! There is a delicacy to this wine that welcomes a rethink of what Sparkling Wine is or can be. Originally this project started as a Pet Nat some year ago but has now evolved into traditional sparkling wine production. Through the handling and fermentation process the tannins have virtually been removed top leave this wonderfully delicate and creamy sparkling wine. The flavours are dark red fruit(s) of raspberry, macerated strawberry and hints of dark cherry. My notes say "Super Yummy" and the finish is completely dry.
