Tim Wildman Astro Bunny
Region: South Australia
Grapes: Zibibbo, Fiano, Arneis, Nero d’Avola
British born MW Tim Wildman loves Australian wine. It was the subject of is MW dissertation and in 2010 he established James Busby Travel to take wine trade professionals on educational tours of Australia. He started his own project in 2014 with the Astro Bunny and Heavy Pétting labels, and was very much a pioneer of the pétillant naturel style in Australia. He works in the Riverland with Mediterranean varietals which suit the hot and arid climate there.
The 2022 Astro Bunny is a juicy, silky pet nat made from a blend of three white and one red Italian varieties: Fiano, Arneis, Zibibbo and Nero d’Avola. Pale pink in colour with aromas of strawberry, stone fruits and cream. Lovely persistent bubbles on the palate with plenty more fresh fruit. Tasty stuff!
