Vanguardist, La Petite Vanguard - Verdejo Petillant Naturel 2020
Our first attempt at making wine from Verdejo, it made perfect sense to have a crack at pet-nat. It’s been a variety used extensively in the Rueda region in Spain to make oxidative, sherry styles of wine. I really wanted to capture some of that character in the wine. Handled super oxidatively from the get-go, and with a touch of skin-contact, we’ve really embraced the funky apple cider/fino sherry character this wine brings. Enjoyed super chilled on a summer’s day, it’ll be the perfect aperitif.'
