Traditional method Sparkling Old Vine Kernling
Included in the recent, definitive, Tim Atkin England 2021 Special Report, by Tom Hewson, with 86 points:
"Quite funky with dried peach and pear skin, autumnal English fruit and a dry, oxidative style with some herbal sage notes. Naturalistic."
Dry and delicious. Still fruity, 8 months on the lees. Base wine fermented instainless steel, malo-lactic fermentation, bottled under crown cap August 2020. Disgorged and corked May 2021.
This wine was sold Dec 20 - May 21, pre-disgorging, as our popular Pet Nat. Now the first 1000 bottles are disgorged and available with zero dosage, tasting very like the Pet Nat but without the yeast.
Base wine made for us by Steve Brooksbank, Bagborough Vineyards. Disgorged by Daniel Ham, Offbeat Wines.
