William + Chris Pet Nat Rose
A blend of Merlot, Mouvedre, Malbec, Malvasia Bianca. The wine is naturally sparkling and bottled before primary fermentation, with no added yeasts or sugars. It's a conversation-starter as well as a testament to the creativity and innovation right now of the wine industry in Texas
The winemaking team at William Chris bottled the first Pétillant Naturel in 2014. Pétillant Naturel translates to “naturally sparkling” and uses one of the oldest known methods for making wine called Mèthode Ancestrale. Winemakers stop the first fermentation process before it has completed and then bottle the wine, enclosing it with a crown cap to follow tradition. It then continues to undergo fermentation after its bottled, which lends to the creation of the natural bubbles.
