ABOUT THE PRODUCER
About Sanctum Volk Pinot Noir Pet Nat
Sanctum Volk Pinot Noir Pet Nat is the winery’s first foray into a Pinot Noir Pet Nat. The resulting wine is a yeasty sparkling rose with some cloudy sediment and lively bubbles. Juicy and bright, with aromas of cranberry and raspberry, this pet nat is a refreshing treat. The sugar level is in check and the fruit is subtle enough that you can certainly enjoy it with food like charcuterie and salads, or a forest berry dessert. But be sure to chill it well and do not shake before opening! This wine is alive.
Embracing the minimal intervention approach in the cellar, hand-harvested grapes were destemmed and spontaneously fermented in stainless steel tanks. 2-day maceration. Still fermenting wine was bottled in October and then roughly disgorged in February.
About Sanctum Winery
In the mid-12th century, French Carthusian monks settled in this northeast region of Slovenia and planted it with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines. The Podkubovšek family, starting with Vlado and his son, Marko, has always cherished and been proud of this local heritage, hence the fact that all of their wines are made in a traditional style, where the vines and the microclimate speak for themselves. All of the grapes are strictly hand-picked on steep marl-rich slopes of up to 45°, and vinified with minimal intervention in the winemaking process.
