Tasting Notes

Fresh and lively aromatics of pineapple, lemon balm, and citrus fruit capture the essence of terroir. Crafted using the ancestral method, it boasts natural effervescence and vibrant acidity. The palate is lively and juicy with a balance of fresh lime, feijoa, and golden kiwifruit leading to a refreshing finish. A true embodiment of Greystone's innovation, this Petillant Naturel showcases the purity of their winemaking.

Winemakers Note

Viticulturist's Notes
Uniquely made from Riesling and Pinot Noir grapes. The fruit for our 2022 Petillant Naturel was handpicked off selected hillside blocks at Greystone. The wind stress produces fruit with intensity and purity while the limestone brings a fine mineral length to the flavour profile. The lower Pinot Noir blocks are on heavier clay soils with a fuller richer flavour profile. 2022 started off cool & cloudy which caused a reduction yield however lower bunch numbers resulted in fruit off outstanding quality with great concentration and beautiful acidity.

Winemaker's Notes
After hand-picking, we chilled and settled the fresh juice for two days to ensure purity of flavour. Fermentation lasted until 17 g/L natural residual sugar was remaining. We then estate bottled without filtration or sulphur and allowed the fermentation to continue in bottle until completely dry. The wine was not disgorged prior to release as we found this aided flavour richness but it does mean some natural sediment will occur. Fresh, dry and with a persistent and fine mousse. No added sulphur.
