Grape: St Laurent
Bottle Size: 75cl
100% St Laurent, this is a beautiful example of the variety. Showing the red fruit characters, lovely suppleness and layered of flavours unfold – balsamic notes, red plums, with good minerality, almost like a chalkiness and superb freshness and a long, lingering finish.
Unfiltered, Unfined, Low Sulfur, Vegan
ZDENEK’S vineyards are in the famous Hostěrádky-Rešov area. He works a day job as a train station master in a nearby town, and the rest of his time he is absorbed in cultivating 1.5 ha of land organically, which also includes old some vines planted in 1953. With winegrowing and cellaring being a family tradition for them, owning and producing wine for Zdenek seemed like the natural thing to do.
Zdenek’s wines come from a very unique area, which is an ancient sea bed and the hills/slopes on which the vineyards are now on were underwater cliffs. Pure limestone soils really brings an intense and saline character to the Gruner Veltliner, Rieslings, Chardonnay, Neuburger in whites and Cabernet Moravia, St Laurent and Pinot Noir in reds.
