Krasna Hora La Blanca

£19.10

PRODUCER: KRASNA HORA
SKU: KRASNAWHITE

Description

This white blended wine from Moravia in the Czech Republic is made from 40% tank fermented Riesling, 20% Pinot Blanc that has been fermented in oak for 3 years, and 40% a Riesling, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc and Gewurztraminer mix that has undergone 2-3 weeks of skin contact fermentation.

This gives a wine that has a slightly cloudy golden-yellow colour, showing that the wine is unfiltered. On the nose, there are lifted floral and citrus aromas with a slight hint of herbs. On the palate, intense fruitiness is balanced by mouth-watering acidity and richness from the softest of tannins in this unique style of naturally made wine. There is a delightful contradiction here between the elegance that comes from low alcohol and the richness that comes from fermentation on the skins. Pair with pork, rich fish, spicy food, sweet desserts, or mature, hard cheese.

Suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans. 

The Krasna Hora winery sits close to the Slovakian border on sloping mountains, where the vineyards were founded by Cistercian monks in the 1200s- the site being chosen for the hill orientation and perfect loess soil. Classic French varieties have been growing there ever since, and the Krasna Hora team follow biodynamic farming using organic methods and natural soil supplements on the 7 hectares of vineyard.
