Krásná hora | Gewürztraminer 2017

 

Winemaker Notes

A single clone from a single vineyard of loess soil, biodynamic farming. Harvested at the beginning of September completely by hand. 40% of grapes had been lost to spring frost, so very small yield. Fermented in steel tanks on skins without stamps for one month. Grapes were pressed and pumped to steel tanks and aged on lees for 8 months without sulphur.

Tasting Notes

Bright rose gold with a pale tinge of copper. The distinctive color of this wine is from extended time in contact with the skins. On the nose, this perfumed bouquet expresses lychees and rose petals. This beautifully refreshing palate shows exquisite balance between juicy acidity and an intense backbone of ripe fruit and spice flavors. The finish is perfectly dry, clean and long.

Suggested Pairings

Pairs beautifully with seafood and salads. Serve between 50-54 degrees Fahrenheit. This wine can be kept for 3-5 years.
