2019 Savage Grace Côt Pétillant Naturel Sparkling Wine
Dineen Vineyard, Rattlesnake Hills, Columbia Valley, Washington
Crown cap closure
Pro tip: I suggest opening any bottle of Pét-nat in the sink, just in case you encounter a particularly volatile one. Having a wine glass close by that you can quickly pour into, in case it foams up and out of the bottle, is a great way to save wine that would otherwise go down the drain.
Wild strawberries and sour cherries dominated this wine! I found it to be quite refreshing and slightly nutty with a full, almost foam-like mouthfeel for all the bubbles. If you’re looking for a wine with bubbles FOR DAYS, this is it!
