Five Rows Natural Sparkling

 An effusive sparkling wine with spicy green apple aromas which continue to a full, lengthy palate that adds a little slate and citrus.

Based primarily on Savagnin fruit blended with a little Sauvignon Blanc, it's made  using the Petillant Naturel (Natural Sparkling) method - original grape juice was added back to the base wine for the secondary fermentation in bottle.

Unlike a methode traditionelle sparkling, we don't remove the sediment, and we don't add sugar.

It makes for a crisp, refreshing sparkling, and the lack of sugar allows the full delicious flavour profile of Savagnin to show through.

 “88% savagnin, 12% sauvignon blanc. An above average pet nat (petillant naturel) style that shows just how vibrant, fresh and complex this old school approach to sparkling wine can be. It takes a high degree of skill to do less in winemaking. Light golden tones, crushed Fuji apples, grapefruit pith, grilled lemon-citrus. Developing a light nuttiness on the palate with citrus long on the dry finish.” 92 Points

Bright and clean, just enough savoury under the squirts of cloudy apple juice and limey acidity. Big, frisky fizz, lots of attractive perfume, good halva/nougat nutty sweetness in the mix. Really pleasing wine, done well in the style. 93 Points
