Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Paso Robles, California
Salad Days Pet Nat is an insanely crushable blend of Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc & Colombard. Why Salad Days? Short answer, because it's flavors are green & fresh. Long answer, at just 9.9% abv, some days, you just need a salad after a weekend of pork stuff, potatoes, pizza & Petite Sirah (or is that just me?). Salad Days is super bright & fresh - on the nose it's all about crisp pear, green apple, lemon & green herbs - the palate is light & refreshing with a soft kiss of Pet Nat bubbles. As a point of reference, if you enjoy bright white wines with lively acidity & some verve, and you trust us - you are going to love this. It's the perfect breakfast, brunch, lunch, aperitif wine.
91 Points - Ian Blackburn
Not only one of California’s best values but inside of PET NAT - I think this is the most likable version I have seen. Absolutely hard to stop drinking - and easy for everyone to agree on. Color 13.5 Aroma 22.5,, Body 22.5, Overall 32.5 = 91 Points
