The fruit was picked on a new moon in early February 2018 hence the name of the wine. It is a “pétillant naturel” based on the méthode ancestrale. The wine was bottled before the end of the first fermentation. With no additions, no preservatives and fermented with indigenous yeast, each bottle is unique and ever-changing, just as a natural wine should be.
Deep gold. Lifted notes of apples, pears and citrus. Gentle beam with cooked apples and some pear notes. Dry with a typical Pet Nat spritz.
On the advice of eminent agronomist Dr. John Gladstones, Dr. Kevin and Diana Cullen planted a trial acre of vines at Wilyabrup, Margaret River in 1966. Commencing in 1971, 18 acres of vines were planted on their sheep and cattle farm, including their first Cabernet Sauvignon vines. Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Semillon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc were planted between 1976 and 1978.
