Made from Pinot Gris and some Pinot Noir
When Milan presented this to a winemaker friend, they couldn't believe it was a Pinot Gris and exclaimed "Podfuk!" (meaning "hoax" in Czech) in disbelief. Closer in profile to local varieties Blaufrankisch or Saint Laurent, this is a flavorful wine with berries, citrus fruit, and rich minerals. It's kinda a big deal.
About the White Label line
Milan Nestarec's White Label line reflects his purist philosophy to winemaking - perfection is achieved not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away. While some might call this the natural way, he deems it the normal way.
About Milan Nestarec
If you ask him, Milan Nestarec isn't a winery - it's a worldview that just happen to be represented through wine. And he has certainly made this felt as one of the most visible personalities in the Czech Republic wine scene. Distinct for their life, vitality, and originality, his cuvées are highly sought after all over the world.
In his own words:
“The cuvées that come from our winery reflect the good and bad characteristics of the people who helped make them. They’re not asking for anyone’s compliments or praises. At first they may be closed, but once they’ve had time to relax, they become expressive and loyal friends.”
