If Czech winemakers can be proud of a particular unique style from a global perspective, then it is Welschriesling from the Pálava region. Moreover  this Welschriesling from Gala is balanced with beatiful harmony. In the intensive aroma you can detect freshly cut pineapple, ripe white peach, yellow stone fruit and roasted hazelnuts. There is intensive and full flavour with long juicy finish.

The winemaker Jarek Gala used old oak barrels for wine maturation, which has minor impact on the wine in comparison with new barrels. The wine was also aged in the barrels on the lees. The aim was to give more body, soften mouthfeel and help to stabilize the wine. The lees were stirred to unsettle it from bottom of the vessel and mix it in the wine. Lees stirring is sometimes referred to by the French term, batonnage. Lees stirring can increase the release of yeast compounds into the wine.  The objective of this practice is to increase wine complexity, body, texture and enrich the aroma with hints of brioche  biscuit and toast. At the same time the fruity flavours were decreased a bit.
