Fuchs & Hase Pet. Nat 2016 Vol I

75cl Fuchs & Hase Muller- Thurgau/Gruner Veltliner/Moscatel Austria > Kamptal Sparkling
Pet Nat Vol 1 is comprised of three super aromatic local varieties fermented together on skins and bottled before fermentation completes, capturing the natural CO2 that makes this wine lightly bubbly. It’s golden and glowy, bone-dry with loads of stone fruit and white flowers on the nose, white nectarine and fuzzy apricot on the palate.

Fuchs (fox) & Hase (rabbit) is a collaboration of Martin Arndorfer and Alwin Jurtschitsch (neither will disclose which animal represents whom). They founded the Fuchs und Hase to excusively produce Pét-Nat (short for Pétillant Naturel: the old-school, traditional way of making bubbly where it is bottled before all the residual sugar is fermented into alcohol, without dosage), and they’re pushing the borders of natural winemaking in Austria.
