About the Wine
Complementing the Seafood Platter perfectly, all guests during Good Food Month will enjoy a complimentary bottle of Swinging Bridge #005 Pet Nat Riesling “Tom Petty” 2018. Pet Nat or Petillant Naturel wines are on the rise in Australia with some beautiful examples, such as this one. They might be new here but it is an ancient form of wine making – method ancestrale; easy to understand when you learn the wine is bottled when it has not finished primary fermentation and left to finish fermenting in the bottle leaving you with a wine that is cloudy and of varying degrees of effervescence.
Tom Petty, named for fun after Tom Ward the winemaker, who is a rising star and great character of the Orange wine world, is alive – literally. It is unfiltered and unfined and in a (good) sense unrefined, but delicious. It exudes elderflower, gooseberries and meadows on the nose whilst on the pallet a creamy texture of green apples and grapefruit pulp together with inevitable bready yeastiness from the remaining solids. It is bottled by hand and crown sealed just to top off the artisanal approach.
Swinging Bridge #005 Pet Nat Riesling is a great accompaniment to The Deck Seafood Platter – it is rustic, artisan, flavoursome, honest and unashamedly unapologetic (also rather like Tom!). Neither are trying to give you a culinary education they are just great examples of what has been done for a millennium. Enjoy!
