Question: Do you prefer drinking Pet-Nat wines clear or with the sediment haze?
Answer: First of all I admit to not being the biggest fan of sparkling Pet-Nat (petillant naturel) with no disgorgement. They can be a lot of fun but your scribe doesn’t really like their unpredictability. There are some lovely ones out there to discover which I prefer to drink clear avoiding the yeasty sediment that with time for the bottle standing up usually sinks to the bottom. Others (including some winemakers) prefer tasting the uniquely natural richer body and texture of that hazy deposit. I believe it is a very personal decision with Pet-Nat wines.
