Pet-Nat, "Mamacita" 2017

Day Wines

We found lots to like among the current crop of American pet-nat, but this bottle from Oregon talent Brianne Day was particularly irresistible. With this wine, Day shows a more playful, experimental side of the state’s wine culture, using malvasia—a grape ripe for the pét-nat treatment—grown in southern Oregon and made fizzy in the bottle. Mamacita! is everything pét-nat should be: full of heady jasmine aromas, with a leesy cloudiness that recalls freshly squeezed grapefruit juice.
