Vintage: NV

Varieatls: Pesecká Leánka & Pinot Gris

Farming: Organic/Biodynamic, Unfined/Unfiltered, Low added SO2

Volcanic tang, crushed rock, yeasty notes mingled with forest strawberries, apricots and flowers. Quite creamy in the mouth, thanks to the fine bubbles and silky maceration notes; ending on a salty acid kick with orange / pomelo rind flavors.

After a year of ageing on fine lees in the stable temperature of our historical underground cellar, the wines are blended together, and we add about 10% of skin-macerated Pinot Gris from 2019 (24 months in barrel) for extra depth. The slow, natural secondary fermentation happens in bottles, launched in autumn 2021 by adding fresh fermenting Leánka grape must (about 5% of the blend). Unfined, unfiltered, undisgorged, zero dosage.
