Nestarec Forks and Knives 2016

Moravia, Czech RepublicThis natural, organic müller thurgau is from Czech Republic's Moravia region, and young Milan Nestarec. Nestarec studied under Aleš Kristančič of Movia, and is one of the bright lights of the Autentisté collective of Czech winemakers, focusing on holistic farming and non-intervention, sulphur-free winemaking. This orange wine is from 17 year old vines at 200m altitude, wild fermented in 2000L stainless steel tanks for ten days before heading to tank for ten untouched months until it is bottled without fining or filtration. On the outer tight edge of natural, with yellow cider apples, perry, elderflower, tight buzzy acidity, and ample gripping texture along an energetic palate, finishing with a hum of fine spice. Lovely, lean and edgy.Tasted: 21 December 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 35.00 private order AB 25.00 Producer: Milan NestarecDistributors: Richard Massey Wine & Spirits
