MILAN NESTAREC ROSE 2017
WATERMELON RAW CHEWY
LEFT OF CENTRE / ORGANIC / 750ML
An intriguing broad rose made from Pinot noir, Zweigelt and Blaufrankisch. Watermelon, ripe strawberry and a savoury bitterness that gets you prepped for the next sip.
From the distributor: Rose (direct press)- Pinot Noir, Blaufrankisch, Zweigelt. The grapes are hand-harvested and destemmed. The juice ferments in 2000-liter stainless steel tanks. The wine ferments for about 2 months, with occasional pigeage and indigenous yeast fermentation. Elevage takes place in the same tanks for about 2 months. The wine is bottled unfiltered, unfined, and with zero sulfur added.
Milan’s father planted 8 hectares of vines in 2001 across two wine-growing municipalities: Moravský Žižkov and Velké Bílovice. No herbicides are used and the vines are worked organically and biodynamically. He believes that gentle methods of growing grapevines and grape processing give the best result. All wines in the cellar are fermented spontaneously and they are usually vinified in oak and acacia barrels.
MILAN NESTAREC YOUNGSTER PINOT GRIS 2017
FERMENT FRESH EXCITABLE
LEFT OF CENTRE / ORGANIC PRACTICES / 750ML
A broad mouth filing white wine, tinned pineapple and a subtle grip.
from the Producer: My wine usually (luckily) has the energy and spirit of a young person: you like it so much that you’re ready to forgive all its naivety and sometimes childish behaviour. I thought that as I got older, I’d switch to 20-yo wines that make me all wise and philosophical. Alas, it didn’t happen - I still love that zingy, untamed youthful charm. And I wanted to share it with others. Hence the Youngster range - a Polaroid photograph of how the wine looks in our autumn cellar, in the barrel just after it has finished fermentation
