Eric Kamm
Kammméhamehaa Pet Nat Rosé
Pinot Noir, Auxerrois, Pinot Gris
Alsace, France

The Kamm estate is made up of 6.5ha situated in the centre of the fortified city of Dambach-la-Ville. This area, on the eastern slopes of the Vosges mountains, is renowned for its terroir and produces wines that benefit from the granite soil in which they are grown. Eric Kamm took over the family winery in 2005 and immediately began to make big changes. As well as converting the vineyard to organic farming, Eric also began to develop wines which deviated significantly from those of his father, Jean-Louis. The vineyards lie 500 metres above sea level - different parcels of volcanic granite that are planted with Pinot Gris, Riesling, Auxerrois, Muscat, Gewürztraminer and a large quantity of Pinot Noir. Eric seeks to let the terroir speak for itself and works with small yields in order to achieve this, using the natural yeasts present on the grape skins to kickstart fermentation.

This rosé Pét Nat is full of personality, terroir and a whole lot of fun. As well as being heavily influenced by the granite soil of Dambach, this wine gathers together typical Alsatian grape varieties: Pinot Noir, Auxerrois and Pinot Gris. Chill to enhance the bubbles and freshness - it’s as drinkable as a grapefruit lemonade, with an extra dash of citrus!
