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.

Varieties: 2019 is a field blend of 70% Pinot Noir, 15% Blaufränkisch and 15% Pinot Gris

Making of: The grapes see a short maceration, and only free-run juice is used. The wine is aged on the lees for 3 years in 225 and 600L barrels. Unfined and unfiltered, with a tiny addition of SO2 before bottling. Certified organic.
