2018 Broc Cellars Shell Creek Vineyard Chenin Blanc Petillant Wine
Winemaker's Notes: "We used the Pétillant Natural method for making our sparkling Chenin Blanc. We pressed whole clusters into stainless steel and fermented the wine until it reached 15 grams of sugar. Then we chilled the wine down to stop fermentation and bottled the juice. As it warmed up, fermentation began again in bottle. Wine spent 4 months in bottle, and was disgorged by hand with no dosage."
Viticultural Area: "Shell Creek Vineyard has sandy top soil and calcareous fossilized sea shells underneath. It was planted in 1972, and owned by the same family (Sinton Family), since the late 1800’s. The vineyard is SIP certified – it is sustainably farmed with no spraying of round-up."
The winery writes, "At Broc Cellars, all of our wines are made using spontaneous fermentation, a process that means we only use native yeasts and bacteria that exist on the grapes in order to make wine. We don’t add anything – this includes nutrients, yeast, bacteria, enzymes, tannins or other popular fermentation agents. Sulphur is a naturally occurring element in all wine, the amount found can vary. We add little to no S02, depending on the wine and style."
