100% Nero d'Avola

We’ve decided to double down on the fun this year and turn our red pét-nat into a fruit driven ruby coloured rosé pét-nat, with a new name and a new fruit source. As with our Astro Bunny, we’re using Sue Trott's McLaren Vale Nero d’Avola. Meticulous viticulture and a stunning vineyard location in the McLaren Flat sub-region of McLaren Vale has allowed us to step up the fruit quality this year and it really shows in the bottle, with the Nero character and fruit power really popping out of the glass - hence 'Piggy POP'! Eight tonnes of Nero d’Avola was hand harvested on Friday 8th March and transferred directly to the Lodestone winery in the neighbouring Adelaide Hills. It was fermented with 25% whole-bunch for just four days before being pressed off skins to achieve the lighter ruby-red colour. The intense power of the fruit allowed us to carry out a shorter skin maceration time whilst achieving even greater fruit intensity in the final wine - that’s the secret behind the Piggy! The wine was bottled with approximately 12 g/L residual sugar and fermented dry over the winter, resulting in a final pressure of 3 bar.
