19 Offshoot Pét Nat Sauvignon Blanc
This new range allows the younger generation of Hunter's to experiment with new techniques and presentation.
Offshoot Sauvignon Blanc is different from the rest, this Pet Nat (pétillant naturel) was bottled whilst still fermenting to create a naturally carbonated sparkling wine.
Techniques can be compared to a Coopers Beer or an apple cider, this wine is naturally cloudy, with sediment, which is a result of the natural fermentation in bottle.
It contains no sulphites and is perfect served cold on a warm spring or summer afternoon in the sun!
Harvest Date March/April 2019

Vino Veritas Wine Shop, Instagram, October 2019 “Their new Pet Nat, the same grapes as the regular sauvignon blanc but it’s allowed to ferment in the bottle, creating a naturally sparkling wine. Awesome!”
90 Points - James Suckling - "A pet nat with plenty of solids, this has extremely, tangy, bright, fresh passionfruit and pineapple and delivers as a fizzy, alcoholic, tropical fruit punch. Thoroughly decent party juice."
94 points - Cameron Douglas MS - "On the nose - varietal, fruity, herbaceous, tropical and organic. Sweet herbs and pineapple, lemon, grapefruit and barely sugar. The effervescence and mousse is quite intense, but seems well placed for the style. Flavours of citrus and preserved apple, some gentle ginger spice and hay, pineapple and fresh herb. This is a wine with a difference - balanced, fresh, well made with a refreshing palate appeal and finish. Drink now and through 2022.”
91 Points - Dr Jamie Goode - "Cloudy, complex, tangy and bright with lovely citrus fruit, as well as elderflower and peach notes. Such vivid fruit here with lovely lemony focus and real precision, showing nice acidity.”
