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.
