First Foot Forward's first Pet Nat is Naturally Petulant (that's a mouthful) and it's a belter!
It's cloudy iridescent pink like a hazy sunset. The bubbly fizz highlights the vibrant cranberry and blood orange fruit and there's a lively prickle on the tongue with flavours of ruby grapefruit, fruit tingles and sourdough. Super fresh!
Naturally Petulant was made by co-fermenting Yarra Valley Shiraz, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay grapes and bottling while still fermenting, locking in the bubbles for a lightly sparkling wine.
Cool the bottle down before opening to calm the wine's petulance (it gets very excited very quickly if too warm). I recommend gently mixing the settled yeast into the wine before opening for that extra creaminess or just decant if you're not a fan of the yeasty goodness.
So fresh, so easy to drink, so delicious.
