Tim Wildman Astro Bunny Pét-Nat 2021

Sparkling Wine from Australia - South Australia
0 star rating 0 Reviews
Despite the funky look of the bottle and the opaque, unfiltered wine inside, this is a beautifully pretty, clean, crisp and refreshing Australian fizz, made from zibbibo, fiano, arneis, nero d’avola and mataro, from Adelaide Hills and McLaren Vale vineyards. The nose offers peaches, mango, passion fruit, lemon and melon fruits, while the palate is foamy as opposed to overly fizzy, with fresh peach and apricot flavours and a moreish tang on the finish. A perfect apertitif and a wonderful alternative to an aperol spritz, drink well-chilled and gently turn the bottle upside down to mix in the fine sediment before opening, to enjoy this generously textured, crisp, complex and infinitely fun wine.

Pale, cloudy, pinky orange. Like peach skin. A medley of fresh fruits and a really attractive sour freshness. Dry, fruity, slightly mad, lots of fun but seriously well made. Clever. 16.5/20

A bright, moreish and pure pét-nat, with very well defined aromas of peach, passionfruit, apricot, red apple and bergamot. An edge of angostura bitters gives it energy, nuance and appeal. Lovely texture and a saline edge to the finish. Will work so well with food - perfect for a barbecue, pizza party or mezze spread. 90/100

Tim recommends gently up-ending the bottle before serving to integrate the fine sediment. It makes for a lightly cloudy glassful, but that doesn’t matter because the mouthful is delicious. It’s aromatic, full of grapey, floral, blossom notes - a truly fruity friend. Red apple and orange rind, pear and juicy peach, with a round and frothy texture and a long floral finish. A blend of zibibbo, fiano, arneis, nero d’Avola and mataro sourced predominantly from the Adelaide Hills. Fun and moreish! 91/100

Half of the blend [says winemaker Tim Wildman MW] consists of white grapes [fiano and arneis]picked at around 10.5 Baumé, to provide a neutral, crisp, clean base. On top of that are layered the nero d’Avola and mataro for fruit weight and a touch of colour, and a big slurp of zibibbo (aka muscat gordo blanco in Australia, muscat of Alexandria elsewhere) – sourced from old vines grown in the Riverland – given 24 hours’ skin contact for perfume and spice. The combination works extremely well. The wine is bursting with really enticing, peachy aromas – evoking a well-made Bellini – and, despite being bone dry, is irresistibly grape-pulpy on the tongue, with an echo of sweetness (the zibibbo doing a lot of heavy lifting here). There’s a well-judged level of persistent, gentle fizz carrying through to the last sip. So many pet-nats are gushy up-front and fail to follow through, but this isn’t too eager to please, and continues to deliver.
