Not your average Pinot Grigio. 
Pet Nat is short for Petillant Naturel (naturally sparkling), Ramoro means skin contact and Pinot Grigio is a grape variety with a slight pinky-grey-ish tinge to it.

 

The wine starts it’s fermentation in contact with the grape skins, which adds a pink colour, along with a chewy texture and stone fruit intensity. Halfway through the fermentation, the wine is bottled and the fermentation finishes in the bottle, carbon dioxide dissolves into the wine, making it fizzy.

When there is no sugar left, the yeast dies and can be seen as a cloudy sediment at the bottom of the bottle. Give it a gentle roll before serving to ensure the sediment is evenly distributed (That's where lots of the flavour is!)

 

This is full bore stone fruit and a rich texture. Think of those peach flavoured Petit Filous yoghurts as a kid, it's creamy and fruity and really really delicious. A nice intro to the world of Pet Nats... Even my mum loves this one.
