Lost in a Field is on a mission to rescue the fast-disappearing heritage grape varieties planted in the UK in the last century and to craft them into delicious, low-intervention pét-nat using traditional winemaking methods. Established by Tim Wildman MW in 2021 helped by Darcy Gander (vineyard) and Daniel Ham (winery).
The 2022 Lost in a Field "Frolic" pét-nat is a blend of 14 heritage grape varieties from vineyards in five English and counties, most of which were planted in the 1980s and 1990s with the oldest being established in 1972. The wine is made from a majority of Madeleine Angevine for aromatics, Reichensteiner for acidity, Schönburger for perfume, with Triomphe d'Alsace and Rondo for colour and small amounts of Bacchus, Huxelrebe, Ortega, Madeleine Sylvaner, Siegerrebe, Seyval Blanc, Phoenix, Dornfelder and Leon Millot
The 2022 wine has a beautiful and remarkable colour - coral pink, lychee skin or candy floss? You’ll be the judge.
Delicate aromas of red currant and raspberry lead to a featherlight body (just 9.5%) and a gentle mousse that is soft and foaming rather than aggressively fizzy with creamy flavours of rhubarb and gooseberry fool. Tastes like a wild English hedgerow and has the weight and drinkability of a Gin and Tonic. Perfect summer sipping!
In a nutshell: Fruity, fault free, zero sulphur English pét-nat made from heritage grape varieties from old vines.
