Today we are speaking with winemaker Mackenzie Brisbois and tasting the Trail Estates Winery Pét Nat (Pétillant Naturel).
This wine is 60 Riesling, 30 Geisenheim and 10 Gewürztraminer from the Trail Estates Winery vineyard. Its bottled part way through a wild-ferment on skin - about 8 days - without any additions (no extra yeasts, sugars or sulphurs) this yields naturally-ocurring bubbles, in a wine that is visually cloudy. A very complex and refreshing wine!
