This wine has undergone an interesting journey – originally a heavy-macerated Pinot Gris, Milan started to shorten the skin-contact time and add some red grapes to the blend, until, in 2018, the wine “switched sides” completely and became red, with only ~20% of PG in the blend. “The full cheating circle, you might say; but I actually see it as a continuity of this wine’s story, a story of searching for elegance despite all my imperfections. Nestarec wabi-sabi. And I can’t be happier with it – not another macerated PG that the world already has a lot of, but a unique red-white blend that wonderfully mirrors our Bílovice loess,” as Milan says.

Vineyards: the BF comes from rich clay/loess plot called Otáhal, PG & PN from Zadní Hora which is pure loess.

Varieties: 2018 is a field blend of Blaufrankisch, Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris

Making of: The grapes are hand-harvested together, destemmed and gently stomped. Spontaneous co-fermentation with indigenous yeast in open-top vats, then press and aging in bigger old barrels from local oak or acacia wood, where it then lays undisturbed for ~2 years on its fine lees. No fining or filtration, no sulfur addition. 

Personality: the fiery spice of Blaufrankisch with a fine lift and noble touch of the Pinots – a red that’s highly drinkable all while offering serious layers for thought thay you’ll love to browse through for hours. Milan says that this was the first red he felt happy enough with to bottle it as a “White Label”, ie. his top-shelf wines, and we wholeheartedly agree.
