California-based Broc Cellars has done it again with this diamond bright sparkler, composed of 87% Chenin Blanc and 14% Muscat, sourced from Paso Robles and Santa Maria Valley. Loads of freshly picked lemon aromas with a racy mineral throughline pulse throughout this Pét Nat. This bubbly beauty is surprisingly low in alcohol at 11% - making it the perfect pre-dinner refreshment!

- Chris picks before what is considered “ripe” in California because he is not drawn to the “bigger is better,” style of wine.
- The wine was fermented until dry, then Chardonnay must was added to sweeten the bottled juice until it warmed up, kicking off secondary fermentation prior to being disgorged by hand.
- Caviar and pearl spoons.
- Any and all tinned fish.
- Snowmen made of sand.
- Snow tubbing sesh.
