Fuchs und Hase Pet Nat Vol. 4
Origin: Kamptal, Austria
Grapes: Muller Thurgau, Gruner Veltliner
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 Vol. 4 is a mix of Gruner Veltliner and Muller Thurgau that was macerated for 12 days on the skins. The natural bubbles are captured within the bottle while still fermenting. This is a handcrafted, pure representation of an Austrian Pet Nat, fermented with native yeasts and with no fining, filtration, or sulphur added. The additional time on skins imparts a light amount of tannin to this Pet Nat, which is balanced by medium acidity. This bottle is the perfect way to start the night, with an apple driven flavour and a wonderful touch of citrus.
