We're very happy to have secured a limited amount of this exciting new pét-nat wine from Master of Wine Tim Wildman's Lost in a Field project. The wine is a blend of 21 heritage grape varieties from vineyards in seven English and Welsh counties. With this fruit they have created a brightly coloured, naturally hazy sparkling wine that they describe as 'English pét-nat Fanta.' It smells like a cocktail of citrus and tropical fruits, and the taste is like drinking a fat, juicy, foaming satsuma. There's a rhubarb like tang and it has a juicy pulpy texture. It is extremely fun to drink.
Enjoy this on its own with friends and light nibbles.
Lost in a Field is on a mission to rescue the fast disappearing heritage grape varieties planted in the UK in the last century and to craft them into delicious, low intervention pét-nat using traditional winemaking methods. Established by Tim Wildman MW in 2021 helped by Darcy Gander (vineyard) and Daniel Ham (winery).
The 2021 Lost in a Field "Frolic" pét-nat is a blend of 21 heritage grape varieties from vineyards in seven English and Welsh counties, most of which were planted in the 1980s and 1990s with the oldest being established in 1973. The wine is made from a majority of Madeleine Angevine for aromatics, Reichensteiner for acidity, Schönburger for perfume, with Triomphe d'Alsace, Rondo and Cabernet Noir for colour, with small amounts of Seyval Blanc, Frühburgunder, Ortega, Dornfelder, Solaris, Regent, Huxelrebe, Muller Thurgau, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, Phoenix, Bacchus, Siegerrebe, Madeleine Sylvaner and Leon Millot.
From three tonne of fruit they bottled 1514 bottles and 404 1.5 litre magnums.
Fermented with natural yeasts and without minimal sulphur dioxide.
