How is there any of this left in stock? From the sparkling-only winery Bella in Naramata is this extremely small production ancestrale-style sparkling. Or pet-nat, if you prefer. Either way, it's the first method that was ever used to make sparkling, so consider this wine a history lesson.

"If the sparkling-only house didn't give away the geekiness award, this is one of two gamay pét-nats from a single Naramata Bench vineyard, each made from a different clone, processed and picked the same. Unlike the pale peach 787 clone, this is a gutsy raspberry hue, with potent raspberry, big riffing spices, a line of cherry yogurt, brisk acidity. Pleasantly bone dry, with the fruit and intensity to back it up. Mineral salts linger on the quenching finish." Treve Ring, Gismondi on Wine
