Tim Wildman 2018 Astro Bunny Pét-NatRegular price £24
Tim Wildman is a Pet-Nat specialist. If you're not up to speed on the style, it involves interrupting the wine's fermentation by bottling it. The fermentation then continues in bottle, producing a lightly sparkling drink. Astro Bunny is a blend of Italian varieties grown in the Riverlands. It's a refreshing mouthful of grapefruit and peach sorbet that's impossible not to love.
Really fresh and aromatic nose, peaches and grapey goodness. A lean and light mouthfeel, bellini-like – this is so light and easy to drink. Spritzy and lots of fun, hard not to smile when drinking this.

Fermented in steel. Zibibbo has some skin contact. Ferments to dry in bottle over the winter.
