2021 Walsh Family Wine Plateau

2021 Walsh Family Wine Plateau

Pétillant Natural is a very old winemaking style which the French call “method ancestral."  To create these lightly-effervescent wines, the fermenting juice is bottled before it finishes fermentation, so that the bottle captures some of the natural carbon dioxide created during fermentation.  This means we get a lightly-fizzy wine, and also some sediment at the bottom of the bottle.

These wines are interesting because they tend to show some variation from bottle to bottle, and also because they require very little (if any) additives in the winemaking process.  Our hope with our Rose Plateau is to capture the fresh and fruity aromatics of an early pick Cabernet Franc and compliment them with some frothy, light bubbles.

This wine is Spring in a bottle.  Fresh, aromatic, spritzy, joyous, and refreshing.

Tasting Notes
With its bright effervescence and flavors of crushed strawberries, ripe pomegranate, and a dash of sea salt the Plateau remains a perfect companion for all occasions.
Winemaker Notes
Fruit picked from the "plateau" block (an upper portion of an otherwise very steep slope), this pet nat is meant to showcase the most fresh, vibrant, fruit-forward aromatics we can pack into a bottle.
Food Pairing Notes
Pairs best with warm Belgian waffles with Chantilly cream and fresh strawberries, grilled pesto chicken over mixed greens, and sunny Sunday brunches.
