Ancre Hill Pet Nat 2022 - Ancre Hill
The newest crop of pet-nat, that is up there in the team's top five wines ever, Ancre Hill have got us dreaming of summer days gone.
Inky red, almost purple in the glass, down to the Triomphe being a teinturier grape (aka. the inside of the grape is red-fleshed), gives you sour cherries and homemade blackberry jam on the nose and a slight herbal back-note. It's made by blending the juice of the new vintage with the previous vintage base wine, whilst it is still fermenting. Typical of a pet-nat the primary fermentation finished in bottle producing a slightly fizzy wine with a good bit of retained sediment.
Be warned this will sell out fast as it does every single year, and you'll kick yourself for not stocking up on more.
Founded in 2006 by Richard and Joy Morris, the aim of Welsh estate Ancre Hill is to produce the best possible grapes and deliver wines of the highest quality. Organic since day one, Ancre Hill introduced biodynamic practices in 2011; they gained organic certification in 2013, and Demeter certification in 2014. You won't find any insecticides, pesticides or herbicides here!
Their winery exemplifies their natural philosophy, with its green roof and its walls made from straw bales. The building’s waste water is also treated in ecological pools and reused on the vineyards. The style of wines at Ancre Hill is ever-evolving, ranging from classic Chardonnay to the pure joy in a bottle that is their Pet Nat. They are produced with minimal intervention and manipulation, with small batch fermentations occurring almost entirely in oak barrels with only wild yeasts, and are super expressive and full of character.
