Wild Juice Chase
A crunchy red pet nat that is packed full of bright red fruit with a fine acid line.
Made from Triomphe d’Alsace grapes, the grapes were handpicked and the whole bunches sealed in a stainless steel vat for 5 days. Following this initial carbonic maceration, the bunches were gently pressed, and the resulting juice left to spontaneously ferment for a further 8 days.
Bottled via gravity with a small amount of natural sugar remaining, and left to complete fermentation. Unfiltered, unfined, no added sulphites.
The Triomphe comes from a small plot of 35-year-old vines grown on clay over chalk in the Test Valley, Hampshire. A relaxed, lutte raisonée management approach is adopted and the vines grow with little human manipulation.
