Single varietal Pesecká Leánka.

Hand harvested grapes at the end of September 2021.

The grapes were gently destemmed, crushed and then macerated on skins for 4 – 10 days in open top vats, until almost dry. At around 8% ABV the free run juice was moved to barrels where the fermentation finished, in order to avoid over-macerating harsh tannins into the wine. The wine then slowly matured in topped-up oak barrels for 12 months. Wine is vegan. 

Meadow in full bloom, nutmeg, honey from forest bees – this wine is like spending a weekend at your grandparents' in the countryside. Elegant, deep, full-bodied yet with zesty stony acidity, finishing on delicate tannins, almonds and apricots. Rustic origins, aristocratic style!

Great pairing with grilled poultry (duck, goose) or veg (portobello mushrooms, aubergine).

Alcohol: 12.5% vol., added sulphur: 15mg/L
