Renegade, 'Crystal' Pet Nat 2021
- In stock, ready to ship
- Inventory on the way
New in the building is this super fun, bright and zippy Pet Nat from London urban winery, Renegade. Made from the croatina grape which after harvest makes the voyage from Lombardy, Italy to Bethnal Green where it is whole bunch pressed and fermented in stainless steel. Incredibly fresh with notes of rhubarb and raspberries, another great bottle of bubbles from the Renegade team
Renegade isn't a traditional producer as they don't have a vineyard and instead buy their grapes depending on quality from growers in the UK and as far and wide as Albania. This may seem mad to a lot of traditionalists however a great line/description on their about us page is "Just like a chef who can select in-season vegetables from the best growers, we can change suppliers and pick the best grapes depending on the weather, regional variances and other external factors" which when you think about it seems obvious right? Why have the restraints of having to use the same grapes year in year out even if you know the previous vintage was better? Anyway, we have long been fans of these guys not because of their ethos and culture or their incredibly original labeling but because their wines absolutely BANG!
