Peachy-orange colour with floral and nectarine aromas. Gentle foaming bubbles with a watermelon wetness and a grapefruit tang giving great gluggability. She’s fun!  Shake well before opening, fridge cold, serving suggestion: beach or park.  50% Fiano, 25% Nero d’Avola, 25% Zibibbo.

Fermentation occurred without any additions and the tanks were progressively chilled slowing fermentation and promoting tartrate stabilization. (This is often a flaw of pét-nats as they can 'gush' and need to be hand disgorged due to the tartrates being unstable. Tim would rather 'fix' it with chilling prior to bottling than 'fix' it afterwards with disgorging. It was bottled with 12 grams of residual sugar with the aim of hitting 10 grams and 2-3 bars of pressure, which he nailed this year.
