Region: Moravia, Czech Republic Grape(s): Grüner Veltliner, Müller-Thurgau, & Welschriesling Winemaker: Milan Nestarec Drinks Best: Now
Milan Nestarec has quickly become the star winemaker of the Czech Republic. He continues to cultivate the same 20 acres of vines his father planted back in 2001 and believes that gentle method of growing and processing grapes produces the best results. Therefore, no herbicides are used, and all vines are worked organically. ‘Bel’ is a blend of three varietals that are sourced from Milan’s vineyards in Velké Bílovice and Moravský Žižkov in southern Czechia. Aromas of honeysuckle and lime zest introduce a palate with lovely weight and texture. The palate is loaded with bright acidity and flavors of yellow apple, ripe peaches, passionfruit, and a mineral-driven finish.
Pairings: Spinach salad with quinoa, roasted veggies, & a lemon-herb tahini dressing
