Keep it natural, baby.
From the Winemaker:
Next level Nouveau.
Winemaking is so exciting, right? My wine usually (luckily) has the energy and spirit of a young person: you like it so much that you’re ready to forgive all its naivety and sometimes childish behaviour. I thought that as I got older, I’d switch to 20-yo wines that make me all wise and philosophical. Alas, it didn’t happen - I still love that zingy, untamed youthful charm. And I wanted to share it with others. Hence the Youngster range - a Polaroid photograph of how the wine looks in our autumn cellar, in the barrel just after it has finished fermentation.
When ordering, you never know exactly what you’ll get (Nestarec Surprise!) - just that it’s gonna be a blend of our most approachable, most ready-to-drink barrels of the new vintage. Another surprise is the label, because each year I make new ones inspired by the faces of my friends.
Milan Nestarec’s vineyards comprise 8 hectares across two wine growing municipalities: Moravský Žižkov and Velké Bílovice. No herbicides are used and the vines are worked organically. Milan believes that gentle methods of growing grapevines and grape processing give the best result. All wines in the cellar are fermented spontaneously and they are usually vinified in oak and acacia barrels.
