Forget what you know about hybrid grapes! This pétillant-naturel from the Finger Lakes is going to change your mind about Catawba; once the most widely planted variety in the country in the early 19th century. Dream-team Nathan Kendall and Pascaline Lepeltier came together in 2016 to create vibrant sparkling wines that celebrate the history of the Finger Lakes using only organically grown grapes, fermenting with indigenous yeasts, and with zero additives. Though the beginning of the season was quite warm in the region, a cooler August allowed the grapes to maintain a high acidity during their extended hang-time. This vintage of the Catawba Pet-Nat is a beautiful dusty rose color due to four hours maceration on the skins. The juice was racked into stainless steel and fermented for a few weeks before being bottled and aged for six months. The wine was disgorged and capped with no dosage and no SO2. We can't wait to try it this year, but if the previous vintages are any indication, this will be alive with acidity, funky and aromatic on the nose, and perfectly refreshing! Michelle DeWyngaert
