Milan Nestarec - Nach 1L (2020)

The 2020 vintage is a blend of Pinot Noir, Blaufrankisch, and also St.Laurent - a grape I love and would love to see around more. light-bodied, fun reds with good acidity. Just stop longing for those flashy fleshy Chilean / Southern reds and be happy with the beauty available at your doorstep…

I’ve been drinking the typical rural Moravian red since I was a kid - before the dawn of new oak barrels, de-acidifiers, tannins and all the other BS covering the sense of place in our wines. But I wanted to put the normal, juicy Moravian red back in the spotlight. I'm super fond of red wines from the Jura: they’re sort of the underdogs when compared to the famous whites from the same region. So voila Nach, named after its color (purple in Czech). Aged in big (3000l) neutral oak barrels, bottled in a healthy measure of one liter. 

The idea here is to have wine that you can drink with literally everyone, be they natural wine fans or haters.

Milan Nestarec has quickly become the star winemaker of the Czech republic during the time we’ve been working with him. His wines display so much life, vitality, and originality, that they have become very sought after all over the world in a very short time. We are honored to have been working with his wines since 2014. The wines we are selling now represent the full evolution of his original vision: a full range of wines, from quaffable yet energetic and inexpensive wines like the forks and knives and liter bottlings of Nach and Bel, to the amazingly expressive skin fermented wines, made entirely without additions of sulfur.
