Echoes of the sea trapped in the vineyard’s limestone soil return on the savoury-edged back palate.
2017: After an unusually dry winter and early appearance of the new shoots, at the end of April we had a period of frost but fortunately we got off lightly. At the beginning of May the first grape blossoms started to open. Following a wet July accompanied by thunderstorms, some with local hailstorms, the vines made fast progress towards the final ripening stage. The harvest began very early at the finishing of August and after about one month it finished at the beginning of October.
Whole-cluster pressing of ripe and healthy grapes, natural must clarification, slow fermentation at a controlled temperature of 16-18 °C (20% in the large casks), 5-month ageing on the fine lees, filtration and bottling in March.
East-facing slope at 500 to 550 meters above sea level. This vineyard, located at the foot of the Mendel Mountains, has optimal conditions during the ripening period for fruit-focused white wines. Sunny days, which are not too hot, and cool nights, which build fruit character and preserve acidity; loamy conglomerate soils with chalky gravels and porphyry sand.
– brilliant yellow
– a nose of pears and ripe Golden Delicious apples, with undertones of flint and hazelnuts
– a fruit-dominated palate, with a delicious, balanced acidity, lingering finish
This wine pairs well with light appetizers, fish dishes and also as an aperitif.
