Bodega Santa Julia La Mantis Natural Pet-Nat 2022 91pts
91 Points Vinous Media
The 2022 Chardonnay Pet Nat La Mantis is in its second vintage and is yellow in the glass. Initially, there is a yeasty nose in which white fruit flavors develop later on. Indulgent in the mouth with fine bubbles, malic tension and a fruity expression, the flavors are intense but diaphanous. Raw, simple and pure.

A very well-made Pet-Nat here with lemon sorbet, mangoes, green apples and a touch of green tea. Creamy perlage softens and smoothes the crisp palate. Very clean and fresh. From organically grown grapes. No sulphites added. Drink now. Crown cap.
Santa Julia La Mantis is the first Organic and Natural wine from Bodega Santa Julia and reflects our mission to develop wines in an organic and sustainable way, coexisting with the environment instead of attacking it. It represents the maximum expression of the variety and its surroundings. Allowing us to enjoy its potential in a more natural way.
On the nose, fresh and lively with notes of white fruits, pear, and orange peel. Some floral hints of honeysuckle or elderflower, along with a touch of yeastiness or bready aromas from the fermentation process. The wine is unfired and unfiltered.
Light-bodied and refreshing with a zippy acidity and a gentle spritz of bubbles. Flavors of tart green apple, lemon, and grapefruit may dominate, with nuances of stone fruits such as peach or apricot. A touch of sweetness, although Pet-Nat is usually dry.
Texture: Delightfully effervescent, with a light and playful mouthfeel. The bubbles are typically fine and delicate, adding a refreshing liveliness to the wine. Offering a unique and rustic drinking experience. They are often enjoyed as a fun and playful option for casual gatherings or as an aperitif.
