A first for Blue Pyrenees Estate, winemakers used a portion of a cuvée Merlot ferment to create a petillant naturel sparkling wine. In contrast to méthode traditionnelle sparkling, an active primary fermentation is bottled with residual grape sugars that ferment out in the bottle creating the natural carbon dioxide bubbles. This ancient technique is thought to have made the first ever sparkling wines & often results in malolactic fermentation occurring in bottle as well. The resultant preservative free wine is cloudy but dry with crément-style effervescence.
