James Pet Nat 2018

$58.00

The 2018 is 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon. The first bottles we disgorged have more than 28 months of aging on lees. No inputs or sulfites added. If James 2017 “wasn’t bad”, James 2018 is better than “not bad”… Very dry, and finely, abundantly and persistently effervescent. Copper-colored. Saline and “white almond” finale.

Vinification Method: Grapes are hand-harvested and destemmed. The wine is fermented for 4-5 weeks and then transferred to bottles to finish fermentation as a pet-nat. The wine rests in limestone caves for a minimum of 14 months (but usually more, as above) before being disgorged and re-capped. Zero sulfur added.
