"Strawberries cherries and an angel's kiss in spring" - Milan Nestarec
This is the kind of bottle you open while swimming, cooking, chatting (you name it) and boom, It's gone, without you even realizing..
This is Danger's little sister. An unplanned child, though: one day during the 2019 harvest, we finished pressing our Riesling, and one barrel still needed to be topped up with about a third of its volume. We didn’t have time to think about it, but had some direct-press Blaufränkisch at hand. Boom, let's put them together, fingers crossed. Tasting it before the end of fermentation, boom, we were stunned: hello little beauty, under the crown cap you go, our first rosé pet-nat you shall become. We’d probably never think of putting these two varieties together. Sometimes the best things aren't born of deliberation but of accidents and necessity.
Tasting Notes: Spontaneous co-fermentation finished under a crown-cap over winter, resulting in juicy juicy juicy lemonade with bright acidity that wakes up all the senses.
Type: Pet Nat Rosè
Grape Variety: Made from a blend of Riesling, Blaufränkisch, Sauvignon Blanc and Zweigelt.
Country: Czech Republic
Bottle Size: 750ml
Alcohol %: 11%
