2013 Onward Malvasia Petillant Naturel
WINE: Faith Armstrong is the winemaker and owner of Onward wines. The gorgeous label was designed by her mother to represents her childhood in British Colombia, where their main vessel of transportation was by boat. Petillant Naturel is a natural, slight sparkling wine made by the initial fermentation taking place inside the bottle once, unlike champagne which goes through two fermentations and a disgorgement of sediment and yeast.
PLACE: From Suisun Valley this up and coming region in Solano Country California, has proven a great spot for not only produce but wine as well. Suisun is an Indian word meaning West Wind; the San Francisco bay plays an important roll in keeping these vineyards cool.
PAIRING: The Onward Pet Nat offers a lovely effervescence with a punch of ginger zest and floral notes on the palate. It is perfect as an aperitif however it can work really well with exotic spices.
TAKEAWAY: As Pet Nat is never disgorged it provides a unique body and texture that make it a great companion to unique foods. It’s a great wine to introduce to beer lovers as well!
