Volařík | Müller-Thurgau Za Turoldem 2016

 

Winemaker Notes

The grapes were hand harvested from the Za Turoldem Vineyard and carefully selected in the first week of November.  Gentle pressing was followed by 30 hours of maceration.  The wine was fermented at a controlled temperature of 15 degrees Celsius and bâtonnage was gently performed at 4 months.  The wine was then aged in the bottle for at least 1 month.

Tasting Notes

The wine is a golden yellow color with light reflections.  On the nose you will find a strong mineral aroma of fresh lime that is supplemented by subtle peach aroma.  The flavor is minerally calcic, full-bodied, and extractive with the long finish.

Suggested Pairings

This wine would be well paired with grilled vegetables like asparagus, as well as freshwater fish or roasted poultry. This wine should be served at between 51‐55 degrees Fahrenheit and can be stored for up to 3‐4 years.
