2022 Finca Mas Perdut 'Pulmo de Mas Perdut' Pet Nat, Penedes, Spain
The 2022 Pulmó de Mas Perdut is the winery’s playful Pet-Nat made from the red Xarel-lo Vermell mutation and the white grape, Macabeu. The grapes are brought to the cellar and are naturally co-fermented in steel tanks for 72 hours. The juice is left on the skins to extract aroma, structure, and color. The must is bottled and laid to rest for 6 months to continue fermenting until fully dry with the lively yeasts inside. The bottles are then disgorged and topped with the same wine – nothing foreign is added, including any addition of sulfites. The resulting fizz is a lovely turbid orange/pink color, with a wildly intense aroma of orange peel and almonds, showing the unique profile of the two different grapes. The palate is exciting and perfectly dry, offering wonderful crunchy fruit, zippy citrus notes, and deep earthy/floral components. This unpretentious is wine complex enough to enjoy with many types of food, but easy enough to enjoy with friends on a patio.
