Description
 
Milan Nestarec 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.

This is a grape swap with the Moravian natural wine OG Petr Nejedlík of Dobrá Vinice. Petr gives me Welschriesling, Muller and Gruner from his beautiful, approximately 40-yo National Park vineyard near Popice, I give him my Pinot and Blaufrankisch. It's a win-win, 'cause we both like the extra fun & adrenaline of working with some “stranger” grapes that behave differently from our own. On skins until the fermentation starts, say 3-4 days, then pressed and left alone in big old barrels. Quite rich and herbal, but thank g-d (or rather the perfect grapes and Mother Nature) there’s still heaps of acidity that make you reach for another glass. And another. And another.
