Tasting Notes

Like their still Edelzwicker, Bloomer Creek's sparkling Pétillant Naturel (Pet Nat for short) is aromatic and delicious. Made from Riesling and Cayuga grapes in an off-dry style. You will notice some sediment from the finished fermentation in bottle and a golden color/amber from extended skin contact.

Staff Pick Notes

Bloomer Creek is right up there with my favorite NY winemakers, and they are one of the producers who give me real hope for affordable natural wines being made domestically. Take this pet-nat, one of my favorites of the style in years. A blend of 30% Riesling and 70% Cayuga (a hybrid that, remarkably, isn't boring+mediocre), it shows orange peel citrus and orchard fruit with accents of white pepper, herbs, and tea leaves. It's just barely off-dry and drinks funky/cidery and tart, perfectly balanced in the end. The remarkable amber color comes from extended skin contact, from manually harvested grapes fermented with native yeasts. No sulfur added. Production hovers ~70 cases so it's a special occasion when we can get some in. Hope you enjoy it this year as much as I did.

Though it's now cultivated worldwide, Riesling is nearly synonymous with German wine, and that country's winemakers have lately begun to produce some very exciting dry versions. They are careful to retain the...
