Spicy delight and a wonderfully weighty mouthfeel.  Heady notes of mango and banana.

BÍLOVICE, MORAVIA, CZECH REPUBLIC

ORGANIC

11% ABV 

Neuburg + Sauvignon, Tramin, Pálava and Riesling from the Slovenské and Babušák vineyards, but for this vintage, the blend now includes some grapes normally used for WTF and TRBLMKR – so better than ever. Some of it is on skins, some of it is direct press, natural fermentation and then aged in large neutral oak barrels for two winters. Bottled unfiltered, unfined and with no added SO2.

Milan is a young grower based in Moravia, a region in the Czech Republic that lies just 15km from the northern Austrian border. Milan’s father planted the 8 hectares of vines in 2001 across two wine growing municipalities: Moravský Žižkov and Velké Bílovice. This region has a lot in common with Austria, from the loess soils to the grape varieties that flourish here. Milan works with a host of varieties including Riesling, Neuburger, Welschriesling, Pinot Noir and the lesser known Hibernal. The yield is kept low in the vineyards and the focus is always on quality and expressing the full potential of each variety.

Milan is a member of the ‘Autentisté’ group - a community of winemakers making authentic wines that strive to express the true character of the land. No herbicides are used in his vineyards and the vines are worked strictly organically. Milan also vinifies everything with indigenous yeasts and bottles without fining or filtration.
