Tasting Notes

We're thrilled by the multitude of natural wines coming out of the Czech Republic. Natural winemaker, Milan Nestarec, has made this fun, delicious white from the Müller-Thurgau grape. This an orange wine, it's color coming from extended skin contact. Bone dry, with notes of cider, meyer lemon, bay leaves and a hint of green olive. Be aware this may have a slight fizz when first opened. The wine is bottled without fining or filtering and zero sulfur is added.

Staff Pick Notes

If you haven't heard of Milan Nestarec yet, it's time. The Czech winemaker du jour is a natural wine darling, and with good reason. Standing proudly beside a motto of "made of grapes, nothing else", his wines are creative, terroir-driven, hand-harvested, provocative, and darn good too. This is an orange wine made from 100% Müller-Thurgau that works great as an aperitif, and would pair beautifully with pork chops, crudo, or anything with mustard and sauerkraut. While a bit cidery in character, it is not overly funky, and has lovely notes of apple and citrus. It's got a touch of effervescence, and is fully organic with no sulphur added. This was my introduction to the wild world of Milan Nestarec, and if you haven't tried his stuff yet, it should be yours too.
