Personality: Vivid and textural! Beautiful bright orange hue, pronounced mineral notes mingling with citrus fruit and a bit of spice. Great tannic structure and refreshing acidity make this wine a real treat.

Vineyard: Odměry, 1ha plot on loess. Northern, north-east and east exposure. Planted in 1977, farmed organically (certified) by Richard himself.

Making of: Grapes are hand-harvested and whole bunches are fermented in old open-topped barrels for ~20 days with only indigenous yeast. The grapes are foot-stomped after fermentation completes, and the wine then spends 10 months in old 600-liter barrels, with regular batonnage. Little to no sulfur added at bottling, unfiltered and unfined.

Winemaker's Note: Single vineyard cuvée of old-vine Pinot blanc and Chardonnay with tiny yields – only about a thousand bottles come from this hectare (=2.47 acres).
