2020 Falkensteiner "Pet-Nat" (Weissburgunder)

The Pet Nat with lot number 21 22 comes from Weissburgunder fruit harvested in 2020 in the Niedermenniger Herrenberg and which was fermented in cask down to 10 g/l before being bottled and released without disgorgement. This wine proves hugely fizzy so be careful open opening as it will spring out of the bottle! Once this excitement is over, one is rewarded with a yellow hazy wine with moderate amounts of bubbles and a gorgeous nose blending pear, a hint of stewed apple, citrusy fruits, herbs, and spices. Where this wine truly shines is on the palate. One gets the bubbly feel of a Pet Nat but all that delivered with stunning aromatic precision and subtlety. The finish is juicy, almost bone dry, and hugely animating. A touch of tartness and chalky firmness rounds off the pleasure in the aftertaste. If Pet Nat AND subtle Sekt are your thing, look no further. Now-2023 91 points. Mosel Fine Wines.
