Keep it natural, baby.
Carefully harvested from the
stunning sustainably farmed
vineyards at Hunter’s. The fruit was
pressed and allowed to settle
naturally, before fermenting in
stainless tanks until ready for
bottling. The wine was bottled at
about 14g/L sugar, which is 30%
lower sugar than you would bottle a
traditional sparkling wine. This
means the wine is less fizzy than a
regular bottle of Champagne. The
sediment in the bottom are yeast
lees along with a few tartrates as
the juice was not cold stabilized.
The wine was unsulphured at
bottling so that the ferment
could finish. (A small SO2 addition
was used during juice handling.)
It is very important to chill the
wine before opening. As with all
Petnats, the lees left in the
bottle can create quite a lot of
fizz when opened if not cold.
Orbis Moderandi marks a new era
in Com munal Brands’ ongoing
collaboration with Hunter’s
Estate. They are one of the
oldest and very best producers in
New Zealand and Jane Hunter is a
legend and an inspiration. For
many years now, they have been the
winery partner for our Otto’s
Constant Dream wines. With this
new venture we have allowed the
imagination of young winemaker
James Macdonald to run free.
Petillant Natural wines use an
ancient method of sparkling wine
production, this method though can
frequently go very wrong. It
requires impeccable fruit and a
real attention to detail. James and
Hunter’s are the perfect partners
for this offshoot of the
traditional Otto’s line.
