What does Milan Nestarec himself say about wine?
Always be yourself, unless you can be a troublemaker. Then always be a troublemaker.
My embodiment in a bottle. It's probably not love at first sight, but when you sit down, it's a friendship for life, so after a while he even stops being an introvert and talks himself out of it. This wine has always been based on Neuburg - an old variety that is now on the decline because of its low yields and compact bunch that makes it prone to rot. But I like it for many reasons - it's best suited to our soil and develops beautiful tertiary aromatics from its initially neutral youth for those who can wait. Its semi-massive flesh makes it one of the tastiest varieties to just eat, but it's also a terrible squeezer. Which made Neuburg a popular sophomore variety back in the commies (piquette for you millennials, lol) - because there was always plenty of material left over from the hand press for a second pressing.
In '17 we picked it up (twice) with a side row of Riesling, which held the acid beautifully. So actually a fieldblend from Slovakia. Mostly fermented on the skins, then a little over two years in neutral barrels because wine takes time. Between you and me, I'm blown away by how much I'm enjoying the result.
