2020 Wildman 'Piggy Pop' Pet Nat 750ml

$47.00

Region: McLaren Vale, SA

Variety: Nero d'Avola, Mataro

The 2020 vintage presented us with low crops as a result of disruptive weather during flowering, and our Nero vineyard was 50% down on crop yield. To make up for this we had to find another red variety that would complement the Nero and provide the Mediterranean freshness and bright acidity that we need. After much searching, we found a neighbouring block of Mataro (aka Mourvèdre) which provided the fresh acid we were after with an additional punch of spicy fruit weight. We’re very happy with how it has married with the Nero. 

We wanted to achieve an even lighter colour this year, making it a rosé with a hazy blood orange hue. The intense fruit allowed us to carry out a short skin maceration time whilst achieving great intensity in the final wine — that’s the secret behind the Piggy! The wine was bottled with 12 g/L residual sugar and completed its fermentation in the bottle over winter, becoming fully dry and resulting in a final pressure of 2.5 to 3-bar, producing a gentle foam.  Wild yeast, no adds, no filtration, no fining, zero sulphur = 100% natural goodness
