A blend of Grüner Veltliner, Riesling and Müller Thurgau. The grapes originate in Moravské Žižkov and Velké Bílovice. The raw material was harvested together. Fermentation and maturation took place in stainless steel for eight months. Unsulphurised. Not clarified. Unfiltered. Any lees or sediment is not a defect of the wine, but a natural characteristic! A wine suitable for every day, ideal for sipping in bulk. The bottle is 1 litre!
Pairs well with: mussels
And what does Milan Nestarec himself say about the wine?
For that moment when magnum feels a tad too decadent but a regular 750 just won't do.
A wine made from local varieties (Müller, Veltliner and Vlašák from the Sahara and Slovak vineyards) that were always put together when making weekday wine (tramín was only drunk hodobóžovo on Sundays, wasn't it). It's logical - these varieties didn't ferment, so the resulting wine was low in alcohol and drinkable. Plus, they have a solid yield, so there was plenty of wine. And they're neutral, so there's no aggressive aromas to bother you. Just the perfect combo for this kind of everyday drinking.
By the way, because of this stylish approachability, Bel is our only wine where we add sulfur (about 30 mg/L total SO2). I don't take sulphur as dogma - it's good in Bel, without it the wine wouldn't have the character it has.
