Kamara | Pet Nat Rosé Blooming Island
Natural wine has no uniform definition. It is a general term used to describe artisanal wine made using organically and/or biodynamically grown hand-picked grapes which are vinified with little or no intervention. Winemakers often rely on indigenous yeast to catalyse natural fermentation, avoiding the use of any chemicals, additives or sulphites.
The result is wine which is alive, energetic, vibrant and unexpected – a welcomed contrast to the industrial practices of the wine industry. Valentina Passalacqua
Name of Estate/Domaine
The wine is, unsurprisingly, lively and brisk with fresh citrus, red fruit, and the snap of cool watermelon to the nose. To the mouth the tastes of strawberry and yeast are predominant. The crown cap holds in the fizz.
*Natural wines are suitable for Vegans & Vegetarians
