Personality: Wild and tasty! Loads of fruit and juiciness – a rosé that drinks easily, but offers a bit more serious matter for discussion too, up to you…

Vineyard: Blend of different plots around the Němčičky village. Loam, sandy soils with south-east, south, south-west exposure, all farmed organically (certified) by Richard himself. The average age of vines is 45+ years

Making of: Grapes are hand-harvested and whole bunches are fermented in open-topped barrel for about 2–3 days with only indigenous yeast. The grapes are foot-stomped, and the wine then spends 1 year in old acacia barrels of various size, with regular batonnage. Zero sulfur added, unfiltered and unfined.

Winemaker's Note: Ryšák (= ginger-haired in Czech) is the traditional local name for an old-school style of wine made with both red and white grapes. The skin contact with the white grapes gives the wine a bit of an “orange” character but the red grapes give it a pinkish hue thus the wine drinks like rosé.
