Skin contact Pinot Gris from the Czech Republic.
Grapefruit, lemon, apricots, oranges. A bowl of fruit salad! Savoury oxidation on the nose with a textural mouthfeel. Throw in some caramel, spice and beeswax, this is an interesting wine not to miss.
Milan Nestarec is not a winery — I always correct people when they say that. Milan Nestarec is ideas that just happen to be represented through wine.
I’m not selling wine. I’m serving a world view. Using wine as a medium.
I could have chosen another one, but this one is so fun. And social.
We do use some biodynamic practices, but tbh I don’t like how it’s become a bit of a marketing gimmick. When working this way in the vineyards, you usually don’t have much time left to talk about it. We only use things that we understand, things I consider important, and things that react to what’s happening in the vineyard at the given moment.
So this is it, my land of freedom. Playgrounds. Stories. Sometimes tabula rasa, sometimes historically conditioned and laid out. I won’t tell you about the spacing, plantation density and other technicalities. What matters is my relationship with these places and what makes them produce wines that exceed the… well, normal.
