Casal de Ventoleza 'Pseudonimo' Pet Nat Minho, Portugal NV

Regular price$18.00

From a third generation family estate in Mogege (about 40 miles north of Porto), this easy drinking and refreshing bubbly is a terrific way to introduce people to Pet-Nats at a great price.
In pét-nat production, the natural fermentation is interrupted and the wine is bottled and finishes fermentation in the bottle. In France, this is also called the "Méthode Ancestrale" of sparkling wine production. It differs from the traditional Champagne method where primary fermentation is not interrupted and finished wines are bottled with a small amount of yeast and sugary liqueur. As time passes, the yeast eats the sugar in the liqueur and a second, in-bottle fermentation produces the trapped carbon dioxide that gives "Champagne Method" sparkling wines their bubbles.

Beyond creating the bubbles in a natural way, winemakers Fernando Moura and Pedro Campos are in the process of getting organic certification for their family estate. And, in the meantime, it is certified for "Integrated Production" which refers to a sustainable farming system that places emphasis on involving the entire vineyard as an ecosystem, the preservation and improvement of soil, and a diversified environment.  

We get juicy ripe pear, meyer lemons, a dash of herbs, a touch of sea salt salinity, and the perfect amount of acidity from this hand-harvested blend of 80% Loureiro and 20% Trejadura (indigenous Portuguese grapes).

Only 500 cases were made.


ABV: 11.5%

Food ideas: Smoke Trout (from Tracklements of course) with w/ lemon garlic chive pesto, pasta with roasted pears, feta cheese, and toasted pine nuts, Brie quesadilla with pear lemon ginger chutney, quinoa with carmelized rosemary tempeh, sauteed pears and toasted sesame seeds
