Lunaria Pet Nat Sparkling Malvasia Orange Wine
Lunaria Pet Nat Sparkling Malvasia Orange Wine is an orange, biodynamic, Brut Nature wine made using Method Ancestral: whole bunches of grapes are gently pressed to extract both the juice and indigenous yeasts from the grape’s skin. This is fermented in stainless steel tanks then bottled where it undergoes its second fermentation creating a gently sparkling wine.
The wines are then aged with the yeasts remaining in the bottle which are visible. The yeasts give added complexity to this orange wine which was first left to rest on its skins to gain more flavour and character.
The resulting wine is rich and textured, notes of dried apricots, candied ginger and orange peel combine with a creamy mouthfeel and persistent bubbles. Brut Nature.
Cantina Orsogna is an award-winning Abruzzo cooperative specialising in native grapes of the region such as Montepluciano d`Abruzzo, Cococciola and Pecorino. Orsogna are committed to the biodynamic principles by which they make their wine and have many certified Demeter biodynamic wines.
Under the brand Lunaria, they support the activities of the WWF LIFE Euroturtles project to protect turtles in the Mediterranean. The aim of the project is to improve the conservation status of the EU populations of two sea turtle priority species, the loggerhead turtle Caretta Caretta and the green turtle Chelonia Mydas.
Move this wine around before opening to combine the yeasts with the wine, giving a cloudy appearence and more body or let them settle at the bottom of the bottle to keep the wine clear.
However you decide to serve, this wine is an excellent accompaniment to fermented dishes such as kimchi or roasted aubergine with walnuts.
The mountainous Abruzzo region of central Italy is situated halfway up the `boot` neighbouring Marche to the north, Lazio to the west and Molise to the south east. Abruzzo is home to one DOCG – Montepulciano d`Abruzzo Colline Teramane, and three DOCs – Cerasuolo Montepulciano d’Abruzzo, Trebbiano d’Abruzzo and Controguerra.
Abruzzo mostly produces wines from Montepulciano but also Sangiovese, Pecorino and Passerina as well as more international varietals such as Chardonnay.
