Blind Unicorn Petillant Naturel
Like unicorn tears filtered through weaves of angel hair, this Petillant might be hard to make, but the results are what myths are made of. Tasting like a bag of mixed berries, it's chock-full of fruit, mashed blueberry in colour and silky like your favourite froyo.
First, we pick Semillon grapes from the Quindalup vineyard, blend them with some Shiraz and wait for an all-wild ferment to start. Then just before the wine goes dry, we bottle it. This way the wine keeps fermenting, but finishes in bottle, trapping the CO2 trying to escape and making it bubbly.
The resultant wine is more purple than the picture looks, super-fresh, bubbly & slightly cloudy.
If someone calls it rosé, slap a glass in their hand and set them straight. This is Petillant Naturel.
