As If Wines, Gratitude Pétillant Naturel, NV
Gewürztraminer / Sauvignon Blanc, North Fork Long Island, New York, NV
Fermented to dryness, this sparkling orange pet-nat is a mouthful of marmalade, tangerine, baked peaches, lime, zesty pineapple, and florals…
The 2020 Gratitude is a skin-fermented Pinot Gris - Gewurztraminer - Sauvignon Blanc field blend. It's unfined and unfiltered, and in a very raw form; you'll see the fermentation sediment in the bottom of the bottle. If you like a richer taste, give the wine a gentle rock to mix it up into the wine for more body and a brioche aroma.
Why We Love It
As If Wines is a project by women-led winery Chronicle Wines. Based in North Fork Long Island, Chronicle Wines was built by winemakers Alie Shaper and Robin Epperson-McCarthy to share their wines with their Long Island community. They believe that every bottle of their wine is a story captured and crafted.
