Freehand Sav Nat Sparkling 2018

On the nose fresh gooseberry, grassy bell pepper notes & squeezed lime. Juicy, mouthwatering skinsy sav from whole bunch fermentation. A gentle spritz of gooseberry, passion fruit, throw back margarita memories with a crisp acidity.

Freehand Winery Background
"We utilise natural farming techniques, and are working towards our 5 year goal of farmimg our land 100% sustainably.. this is becoming as much of a passion to us as grapegrowing and winemaking! We began using Biodynamic preparations in Winter 2008 and will continue to do so as positive signs have been observed in the vineyard.
To ensure our fruit is of the best quality many cultural practices are followed throughout the growing season. Shoot thinning, positioning, leaf plucking and bunch thinning are all applied to achieve a balanced vine and allow sunlight into the canopy to slowly ripen our fruit and develop the flavours unique to our site. All of these tasks are done by human hand (as opposed to machine) to ensure a precision result."
