Vandal Pet Bat 2020


Producer: Vandal
Country: New Zealand
Region: Marlborough
Grape: Chardonnay, Muscat

Vandal Wines was set up by three unnamed, masked Marlborough winemakers as an escape from the restrictions of their day jobs. Hand harvested Muscat 50% and Chardonnay 50%. Fruit was sourced from a 30 year old single vineyard in the Southern Valleys of Marlborough. Grapes were gently pressed and co-fermented ‘wild’ in seasoned French barriques at ambient temperatures with high solids. At 10 g/l residual the wine was bottled to capture natural effervescence. Harmless yeast sediment remain.
