2017 2Naturkinder Bacchus Pet Nat, 750ml

Availability: In stock (5)

Pet-nat from Franken made of the tart German cross known as Bacchus. Biodynamic farming, ferment as whole clusters with native yeast in steel tanks without temperature controls. This last for 2 weeks, all long the juice is in contact with the skins, making this an sparkling orange after it is bottled while still fermented for a gentle fizz. Left non-disgorged so it is naturally cloudy with a yeasty profile. Only 1800 bottles produced.

Notes from the importer (Jenny & Francois):

"Micheal Voelker and Melanie Drese spent many years working in other fields, traveling the world and living in Heidelberg, Regensburg, London, and New York. In 2013 they returned to begin taking over Michael’s father’s winery in Kitzingen in Bavarian Germany. Michael’s father is a long time winemaker, who in fact sits on the quality control board for the appellation, but has been very supportive of Michael’s desire to make wine without additives. They began to make natural wines under the 2naturkinder label as a side project for the winery, and since then have decided to fully expand the project to take over more of the winery’s production. Michael has a particular interest in bats in the vineyard, and a few of the labels are inspired by them. He obtains bat guano from a local nature conservancy, which he uses when fertilizer is required. He is also sponsoring a research project to fund the role of bats in the vineyard."
