Osmote Wine 2019 Cayuga Pet-Nat
Lemony on the nose, this low-alcohol (9.3% abv) method ancestrale speaker made from 100% Cayuga White (a Cornell-based hybrid) also shows sweet green apple aromas and some subtle yeasty fermentation notes.
That green apple steps forward on the focused, super-fresh palate, almost in a Jolly Rancher sort of way, with soft carbonation brisk, piercing acidity and a citrus pith feel on the end of a medium-length finish. As it warms just a bit (it's so easy to drink that your bottle may note get that chance) some sweet citrus and pear notes peek through all that green apple.
