2020 dalton pét nat sparkling wine
First Israeli Kosher Pét Nat!
Nestled in the heart of the Galilee, adjacent to the beautiful village of Kerem Ben Zimra, Dalton Winery is a gem that derives its excellence from the skills of its people and the natural gifts of its surroundings. Established in 1995 by father and son Mat and Alex Haruni, the two identified the potential of the Upper Galilee, envisioning it as a premium wine producing region.
Dalton’s Pét Nat (Petillant Naturel) is a cheeky sparkling wine that finished fermenting in the bottle. The wine is a blend of early harvested Semillon and some Muscat of Alexandria (about 9%). The Semillon began fermenting in tank and just before completion was blended with some sweeter muscat, transferred to bottle where it completed fermentation. The fermentation in the bottle causes the wine to be effervescent and also slightly cloudy.
Dalton’s Pét Nat is bright and effervescent, fruity with aromas of grapefruit and green apples with floral and citrus undertones. On the palate, crisp refreshing acidity and big lively bubbles. The wine is unfiltered and very low in sulphur. It will be cloudy when served and should be stored in a cool dark place. It is not meant for extended aging. Kosher, Kosher for Passover. Non-Mevushal.
