2018 Field Recordings Blanc de Franc Paso Robles

SKU #1409079

From winemaker Andrew Jones comes this esoteric delight, a lightly sparkling (and lightly colored) rosé of Cabernet Franc made in the pétillant naturel style. Timing is everything with this wine as it must be bottled and capped with just the right amount of remaining natural sugars to continue fermentation (thus, creating captured carbonation). It's not an easy trick to pull off, but when it goes right, it really goes right.

Pét-Nat you say ? Light, Natural and Fizzy! the wine is bottled prior to fully completing its first fermentation, allowing carbon dioxide to be produced by the natural sugars found in the grapes. Pét-Nat production is variable and can be difficult to control and that is why it requires a level of expertise on the winemaker’s part. The end result is Cloudy, creamy, light with a hint of green apples and absolutely delicious.

A sparkling wine just weird enough to be worth liking. It reminds me a lot of a funky spanish cider, but it may even be cooler. Rich, creamy, a touch of minerality, and even some green apple notes, the Blanc De Franc is a nerdy natural wine lover's dream come true in sparkling form. This will definitely be one of recurring sippers for the summer.
