Personality: Wine with a beautiful soul. Treat it to some breathing time to let it speak fully and enjoy its evolution in the glass and bottle as the evening progresses…

Vineyard: Veselý, a 0.3hectare plot planted in the 1980s. Sandy soil, southwest exposure, farmed organically (certified) by Richard himself.

Making of: Grapes are hand-harvested and whole bunches are fermented in open-topped wood tanks for about 14 days with only indigenous yeast. The grapes are foot-stomped after fermentation completes, and the wine then spends 10 months in old barrels of various sizes, with regular batonnage. Zero sulfur added, unfiltered and unfined.

Winemaker's Note: One of Richard’s signature wines, a classical field blend of traditional local red varieties from his tiny old vineyard called Veselý (“merry” in Czech). The yields are naturally low, giving only about 1000 bottles per year.
