An aromatic and fragrant orange wine made from a blend of two of my top orange wine varieties. 3 weeks maceration on skins gives a deep orange colour and those incredible stone fruit and spice notes that make this a seriously special orange wine.
Dlúhé Grefty, which translates as long rows, is run by Jaroslav Tesařík and his family in Mutěnice. Looking after 2.5 hectares of vineyards, with 1.5 hectares producing wine. They work with old vines going back to 30-50 years and a vineyard plot that was planted in 1941 (80 years worth of history). All wines are kept on fine lees in barriques, lot of play on/with skins, unfiltered, unfined, SO2 only at bottling.
