Dharma 2021 Orange Pet Nat

PRODUCER INFO
  • Christopher Ermisch was the original founder of Bodega Calle, along with Elvira Calle, a well-known local businesswoman and philanthropist.
  • Dating to 1925, Bodega Calle resides on what’s now on a residential street on the corner of 3 other founding wineries of this classic premium winery crossroads zone known as Drummond.
  • A small-lot, gravity-flow, wine production studio, Bodega Calle places great emphasis on gently crafting wines with regional distinction and grand personality.
ABOUT THE WINE
  • This special ‘orange’ Pet-Nat wine comes from a blend of white grapes from old vineyards ranging from 50 to 80 years old in Uco Valley. The wine was naturally carbonated in the bottle. Best enjoyed cold, poured into two glasses and shared.
  • The winery is organically certified and all grapes are delivered to the tanks via gravity and fermented with native yeast.
  • The wine is vegan in that no animal products were used in any part of the winemaking process. GMO free. Single Vineyard. SO2 is kept at or below 30ppm.
  • Co-fermented grapes, the wine was meticulously cellared on its skins in a concrete egg for 8 months before being bottled.

Vintage: 2021 | Wine Type: White Wine
Varietal: 80% Pedro Gimenez / 20% Moscatel
Origin: Argentina | Appellation: Single Appellation, Tupungato, Mendoza
Elaboration: Hand picked and hand sorted. Destemmed and delivered to concrete fermentation tanks via gravity. The cap is gently submerged during ferment. Then it is left on its skins 8 months without needing SO2 because of the high level of anti-oxidants in the grape skins. After it has acquired an orange color and is slightly tannic, it is gently drained and pressed off, given a minimal SO2 addition and bottled fresh.
Winemakers: Kirk Ermisch and Guillermo Heras

TASTING NOTES
