White dry cuvée from Neuburg, Müller thurgau, Muscat. In classic bottle with crown cap. The name already warns of the dangers of uncontrolled drinking of lightly sparkling wine like Pet-Nat.
Pairs well with: aperitif or light meal, paste
What does Milan Nestarec himself say about the wine?
Warning! Dangerously drinkable. Approach at your own risk.
Our sparkling heartthrob, created out of a desire to preserve the youth and energy that wine has in the bottle during fermentation. My eternal theme of energy in wine - I almost wonder if I was an electrician in a past life.
First vintage 2016, zero 2012. That's when we bottled 5000 cases with too much residual sugar and the bottle warehouse became an ammunition depot as the bottles started to explode due to the pressure. Normal winemakers try things on 30 bottles, I try things on 5000. Or they get it analyzed beforehand. Njn. (My French distributor, Fleur, just remarked dryly at the time: don't you guys have labs?)
I breathed out the few hectoliters disappearing down the drain for a while, but the lesson worked, and when my wife and I first opened Experiment 2 in the spring of 2017, it was divine. A total life saver. The energy, we complimented it at the time. I'm not kidding, there was an electrical panel a few feet away from us at the time with that famous Danger 380V sign. And the name was out there, in a second. I don't call it pet-nat, because it's not the murky stuff that comes out if you don't refrigerate it. It's just a kind of electrifying lemonade with a few extra volts and bubbles.
Field blend (Sahara vineyard) Neuburg to give it balls and character, Muller for quantity because we need a lot of it (folks are thirsty and drink it themselves, see the warning on the bottle), and Muscat to make it play better.
