Pet-nat, lo-fi, wild ferment, organic, unfiltered, additive and preservative-free... so many buzz words! The term natural wine points to a range of wine making techniques that are more 'hands-off'. Simply put, minimal intervention or natural wine making is about turning grapes into wine with as little input from the wine-maker as possible, however requires much skill, attention and experience. Fruit is picked at optimum ripeness and because no yeast or other fermentation agent is added, extended skin contact is sometimes used to enhance the fermentation process and flavour profile of the wine by allowing the natural yeast on the fruit to ferment on it's own. The result - fresh, funky, sometimes fizzy, electrifying wines!
