Tasting notes

“This pet nat is a blend of Riesling and Schonberger, naturally fizzy and sulphur free. Extremely smashable and just a little funky! $1 from every bottle goes to the Southern Ocean Carbon Company. This is the first steps in creating a positive carbon brand” - James Broinowski

Words from the YGOW 2023 Pet Nat Deep dive - This featured in the top-six selections of Vigier, Strickland and Kline:

“The most fragrant of the bunch, boasting the refreshing scents of lemon and lime,” wrote Vigier. “It is filled with the delightful flavours of spicy stone fruits, like nectarines and peaches, followed by the zesty notes of green fruits such as apples and pears. I am absolutely hooked by this wine. The aroma is uplifting and the balance between the lees and the wine is expertly constructed. …On the palate, it mirrors the nose with hints of green fruits along with a touch of citrusy lemon and slightly bitter grapefruit peel. …There is also a touch of pickled daikon and root vegetables. The palate is vibrant, electric, and incredibly enjoyable. The fruits are perfectly ripe, balanced by well-managed levels of freshness and acidity. … It has the appearance of a natural wine but carries itself with a serious manner.”

Food pairing

Best served with good friends and banter.

About the winemaker

Tasmanian-born James Broinowski completed his bachelor of viticulture and oenology at the University of Adelaide in ’13. He was faced with the same problem as many other graduates wanting to strike out on their own: cash.

While others in his predicament may have found the same solution, his was the first wine venture to successfully seek crowdfunding. The first year, he bought enough pinot noir from Glengarry in Tasmania’s north to make 2100 bottles of pinot noir (which won a gold medal at the Royal International Hobart Wine Show ’16) and 200 bottles of rosé.

The following year he was able to buy pinot from the highly rated Gala Estate on the East Coast, as well as a repeat order from Glengarry. In ’19, James added Saltwater River vineyard on the Tasmania Peninsula to his roster of premium single sites. The quality of the wines is seriously good, too.-JAMES HALLIDAY

Commendations for previous vintages

Wow. Small island, but a big pinot noir. Tasmania’s answer to Central Otago. The colour is deep, and both the texture and tannin structure are powerful. But amidst this feast of plenty, there is purity and restraint to the cherry fruit that emerges to claim the finish and after taste. Gold medal Hobart Wine Show & richly deserved.


Impressively deep and youthful red-purple colour; savoury aromas of forest-floor, fresh-turned earth and peat-moss. A smoky/nori-like umami aspect. The wine is powerful, intense and impactful, with a long-lasting tannins and persistent follow-through. A sumptuous wine with real class and Burgundy-like dimensions. Very impressive.


It fits into the perfumed steamroller category. It's light but powerful, pretty but not at the expense of substance. It looks as though Small Island Wines is a star in the making. Crisp red berries, under growth, woody spices, a svelte impersonation of plum, florals. Billboards of savouriness line the road of fruit. It's a brilliant wine.

    Got me interested in Pet Nat!

    I had not tried Pet Nat until I went on holidays to Tasmania. I now often get this sent as gifts to my friends back on the mainland
