Tim Wildman - 2019 Piggy Pop
This 100% Nero D’Avola is naturally fizzy and naturally fun. You might find hints of cherry on the nose and palate. Great with food. Great without.
"We’ve decided to double down on the fun this year and turn our red pét-nat into a fruit driven ruby coloured rosé pét-nat, with a new name and a new fruit source. We’ve moved to a premium vineyard in McLaren Vale with meticulous viticulture and a stunning vineyard location in the McLaren Flat. This has allowed us to step up the fruit quality this year and it really shows in the bottle, with the Nero character and fruit power really popping outof the glass - hence Piggy POP! Eight tonnes of Nero d’Avola was hand harvested on Friday 8th March and transferred directly to the Lodestone winery in the neighbouring Adelaide Hills. A small proportion was set aside for theAstro Bunny, whilst the rest was fermented with 25% whole bunch for just four days week before being pressed off skins to achieve the lighter ruby red colour" – Tim Wildman
