Krásná hora | Cuvée Bernety 2015
The grapes for this wine were hand harvested in the middle of October from organic vineyards farmed with biodynamic methods. Fermented with hand pigeage in open casks, there was one month of contact with skins. After pressing, the juice went through malolactic fermentation then stored for 12 months in oak until blended. The final wine was bottled without filtration or fining.
This dry red wine is a bright medium ruby-garnet, with a slight haze due to the lack of filtration and fining. The aromas show the plum and spice of Merlot along with the black currant, mint and cedar of Cabernet Sauvignon. Medium bodied, this elegant Bordeaux blend balances the fresh, juicy fruits with firm, mouth-watering tannins. The crisp, pleasant acidity provides a long, clean and refreshing finish.
This claret-style wine would pair well with charcuterie, especially pate. Grilled or seared red meats like steak frites with haricot verts would complement well, or just drink it with simple goat cheese or brie.
