  • This wine is fermented spontaneously.
  • Other Information:The grapes are picked by hand, pressed in whole bunches and the juice cools down for about 12-24 hours. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in small stainless steel tank with indigenous yeasts, nothing is added to the wine. As soon as there's only about 6-8 grams of residual sugar left, I cool it down, bottle the wine and let the fermentation finish in the bottles. The Mystère Pétillant means the sparkling mystery and I believe that's always the case with petnats, you never know what's inside until you open the bottle! The label is designed by Finnish illustrator Jenna Kunnas.
