Strelley Farm Pet Nat NV
A blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Riesling and Gewürztraminer from the Coal River Valley. I imagine the winemaking team had a lot of fun here. You’ll find it a butterscotch yellow in the glass. The wine immediately hits you with distinct ripe jackfruit aromas. If you haven’t tried one before, think of it as a medley of finger banana, mango ice cream and custard apple. You are then treated to a slice of wobbly passionfruit curd tart with vanilla bean and toasted coconut in the crust. It’s an invoking wine and one that makes me hungry as you can tell. Richly textured with brioche, honey and roasted cashews, there is a bit of everything all at once in this wine. It’s unlike any bubbles you’ve tried before and feels like it’s designed for Spritz lovers. Drink now alongside a good old homemade pavlova – the messier the better.
