STAFF PICK

This is DANG! The electric alliance of Ardure Wines and Pét Nat Posse centered on a mutual adoration and exaltation of the magnificent Muscat Canelli grape.

An early September harvest from Luchsinger Vineyard in Lake County, California with ten days spent lounging on skins and a subsequent three week chill out in tank before being captured in its final form with a small amount of residual sugar to finish fermentation. Bottle conditioned for nine months. Unfined, unfiltered, and undisgorged.

Pét Nat Posse exists as a natural wine appreciation platform focusing on small production natural wine producers and showcasing and signal boosting small businesses assiciated with the natural wine world. Their unofficial motto? Drink what you want, like what you like, don't let anybody else's noise dictate your taste.

Be sure to give @petnatposse a follow to stay up to date on the latest wines arriving in the US in addition to his own releases. If you didn't know, now you do.

Jason Ruppert's background started as a sommelier running successful wine programs in Marin, Sonoma and San Francisco, California. He had the distinguished fortune to have worked alongside Ted Lemon of Littorai and Steve Matthiasson, learning the ways of Biodynamic and Organic farming methods while working three vintages with Pax Mahle, Scott Schultz of Jolie Laide, Ryan and Megan Glaab of RYME and Jaimee Motley as well as working with Laura Brennan Bissel of Inconnu as her cellar rat before being given the opportunity to farm two vineyards on his own and to make his first set of three wines for the 2018 vintage.  

Jason farms both his Chardonnay from Marin county and Zinfandel from Dry Creek Valley naturally with no sprays of copper or sulphur.  Both sites are in the process of regenerative farming methods, working with specific cover crops to help nourish and protect the soil. The wines are vinified in the most natural of ways with their healthy, native yeasts, basket pressing and letting all wines go through malolactic fermentation on their own and using little to no sulphur right before bottling. He also uses different crystals during primary fermentation to add in extra energetic vibrancy to the finished product. Ardure translates to "the heat of passion" in olde French.

An efflorescent medley of orange blossom, apricot and citrus zest aromatics. Bright and refreshing with lively bubbles plunging into an apricot, neroli daydream. Dry as a bone (thug) in harmony with a delicately lingering salinity and the still glowing stone fruit aura enrapturing your perceptions.
