UIVO PT Nat Curtido 2021
Case of 6 bottles.
This Pet Nat - sparkling wine made following the Méthode Ancestrale - is made from 100% Moscatel Galego grapes, hand-harvested from +40 year-old vines, grown on hillside slopes (schist and granite derived soils) in Alijó.
Whole clusters are put into cement tanks (no mechanical extraction) for 2 weeks on the skins; no SO2 added. The wine is bottled after first fermentation (~October), without dosage, then disgorged by banging the bottles against a truck tire to dislodge the sediment and turning the bottles upside down. No filtering, and no malolactic fermentation. Alc./vol.: 10.5%. R.S. < 3 gr./L.
Tasting note: Intense straw yellow colour. Aromas and flavours of tangerine, nectarine, and lychee, with gentle iced tea, floral/herbal notes. Sustained petillance. Dry (bottled Brut), refreshing acidity (juicy), some tannin tension, and a long finish.
Pairings: Serve fresh. Pair with more delicate dishes - fresh fish, shellfish, even Sushi - Thai-style vegetarian dishes, fish curry, or just enjoy a glass on its own
