Offshoot Sauvignon Blanc Pét-Nat 2021


“If there is one company that started the whole international story called Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc it is Hunter’s – they got the magic started.” – Bob Cambell MW

Sometimes called ‘Mr New Zealand Wine’, Bob Campbell was only the second wine writer in the world (after Jancis Robinson) to become a Master of Wine. So, when he says that Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc owes its success to Hunter’s, you’d better believe it’s true. And they’ve never stopped innovating, as proven by this Pét-Nat.

Pét-Nat (short for Pétillant-Naturel) is Champagne’s cooler, older sibling. Its technical name is ‘méthode ancestrale’ and although this buzzy style has been around for some five centuries, it has blown up recently and developed a huge cult following. Hunter’s Offshoot Sauvignon Blanc Pét-Nat 2021 is crafted using fruit from a vineyard in Waihopai Valley. The wine was bottled while still fermenting and closed with a crown cap. As the yeast continues to chomp the sugar, it produces carbon dioxide, and those bubbles are trapped in the wine. There’s no filtration prior to bottling, making it vegan friendly, but also cloudy (that sediment is completely harmless). Immensely summery, we consider this the IPA of the wine world. Expect lots of crunchy citrus, grapefruit, white peach, apricot and pear flavours, and a lingering green apple acidity that’s wonderfully refreshing. 

Offshoot Sauvignon Blanc Pét-Nat is suitable for any occasion, but we’ll probably drink it all over the summer in the sunshine.
