Fuchs und Hase Pet Nat Rose
Origin: Kamptal, Austria
Grapes: Zweigelt, Cabernet Sauvignon
Martin & Anna Arndorfer and Alwin & Stefanie Jurtschitsch are great friends from the neighbouring villages of Strass and Langenlois. They spend lots of time together tasting in their cellars and philosophising about wine, usually with a beer in their hands. Fuchs und Hase was born from this friendship. German for "Fox and Hare”, the name is a reference to the Austrian idiom "Where fox and hare say goodnight”; a secluded spot surrounded by woodland. All of the vineyards used in the production of these Pet Nats are located in remote areas surrounded by forest.
Pet Nat Rose is a mix of Zweigelt and Cabernet Sauvignon that was fermented together on the skins. The natural bubbles are preserved within the bottle while it is still fermenting. This handcrafted, pure interpretation of an Austrian Pet Nat is fermented with native yeasts and has no fining, filtration, or additional sulphur. It's full of delicious red berries with a nice herbal touch. It's ideal for summer picnics or as an aperitif.
