Natural wine from a young Moravian winemaker who gathered winemaking experience during a several-year internship with a living legend of Moravian winemaking – Doc. Ing. Miloš Michlovský. Grapes of the white Veltlínské zelené (Grüner Veltliner) variety were processed as if they were red wine. Jiří Holešínský really succeeded with this wine in the style of natural, so called authentic wines. It is very multi-layered with a long aftertaste.

How was the wine made?

The grapes of this wine were ripened and fermented on the mash, after which the wine was aged for 12 months in French barrique barrels. Battonage was carried out, i.e. mixing the wine with fine yeast lees, including from the Hibernal variety. Without using SO2. Malo-lactic fermentation took place in the barrels, which transforms sharper tartaric acid into rounder lactic acid. The wine was not filtered.
