Krásná hora | Blanc de Noir 2016
The grapes were of two Pinor Noir clones, hand harvested from an organic vineyard in the second part of September. The German clone is more fresh and juicy while the Burgundy clone is a small, full grape that is full of structure. Quickly pressed with stamps (like Champagne), fermentation took place in steel tanks (85%) and oak casks (15%). After 8 months of battonage, the final wine was blended and bottled.
This off-dry rosé has a brilliant pale salmon color. The bouquet shows lifted red berry aromas and hints of forest fruits on the nose, while the palate features intense red and black cherry flavors along with mouthwatering freshness and liveliness, followed by a long, clean finish. The Blanc de Noir style showcases the flavors normally associated with a red wine because it is a white wine made from red grapes. This wine will suit a wide range of foods thanks to its balanced, crisp acidity.
This wine would be a great complement to light pasta dishes or Asian-inspired cuisine. It would be an easy fit with most any salad, especially those with goat cheese. Grilled poultry or fish with a side of saffron rice would be just as natural.
