What the Flor Milan Nestarec, unusual natural wine, Gruner matured under Flor yeast, no added sulphites, wild yet alluring wine, incredible complexity and very drinkable. Gruner Veltliner from one of the oldest (40+ years) vineyards chez Nestarec called Otáhal. Plus a bit of Riesling. Half is skin-macerated, half is direct-press. Blended and nested in a local acacia barrel. Nestarec says in his own inimitable words….. ‘Veltliner is second only to Neuburg when it comes to mirroring our local loess terroir. It’s so wonderfully heady that it shines through even conventionally made wines: even with commercial yeast and other bollocks added, I can still tell it comes from Bilovice, our village. It’s pretty incredible. That’s the character I’m talking about, present in this wine as well.’
There is certainly bags of character in this wine, you can drink like a dry sherry or vin jaune woth the foods that those wines go with or just drink it like a full bodied white, either way, it is delicious, interesting and unique.
