2015 COMBE PET'NAT
This is the only sparkling wine to be made at Stolpman Vineyards. Petillant Naturel (naturally sparkling wine) is a process when secondary fermentation takes place in the bottle with the natural sugar of the juice (with no added sugar).
Cuadrilla picked about a ton and half of Trousseau two weeks earlier than the rest of the crop. The fruit was crushed and macerated for a couple hours before being pressed using a gentle Champagne cycle. The juice settled over night before being racked to tank to undergo Primary (native) fermentation. After twelve days the fermentation was arrested at around 1-1.5 brix.
The juice is then bottled under a crown cap, and the secondary fermentation is completed in bottle. In the spring, the bottles were riddled, disgorged (The process that removes solid particles) and finished under crown cap.
The bottled wine boasts of flavors of shaved red apples, cinnamon, and a pop of pineapple. Soft and creamy bubbles.
