ABOUT THE PRODUCER
About Pigar Ancestral Musskat Pet Nat
Pigar Ancestral Musskat Pet Nat is a sparkling wine made with 100% Moscatel of Alexandria with 5 days of skin contact in stainless steel vats. Bottled on the lees for 9 mo and disgorged to order. All hand-harvested, spontaneous yeast fermentation, and no fining, filtering, or SO2 of any kind. Like drinking a floral orange blossom bouquet. The kinda wine you need on a hot day when you’re thirsty. 450 bottles produced in total. Grapes are organically grown young vines of Muscat grafted onto 30-year old rootstock. Due to some vintage issues, this is going to be the last time we see this pet nat for a few years. They had to rip up all of the vines after 2020 harvest to replant and will hopefully make this again in 3-4 years!
About Bodegas Y Viñedos Pigar
If you like the Cueva wines then you’re gonna love these. Let’s just say Mariano took Juan under his wing and showed him everything he knows. Juan’s family owns vineyards in and around Requena but it’s only Juan who found his vocation in winemaking after meeting Mariano and tasting the magic. You’re probably asking yourselves why he has so much Chardonnay and the answer is quite simple. Utiel-Requena is an authorized Cava region and for this reason, his family planted so much Chardonnay. That said, he’s also working with/recovering some of the region’s indigenous grape varieties like Tardana, Tortusi, Royal, and of course, Bobal. He practices organic viticulture and his winemaking is as radical as Mariano’s. Pure fermented grape juice, nothing else.
