Grapes: Pesecká Leánka, Pinot Gris
One vineyard, two grapes, ∞ dimensions! Leánka brings freshness and lightness, Pinot a bit more depth, minerality, seriousness, matter. Thanks to ageing the base wines (one or two years in our cellar) and slow secondary fermentation in bottles, the result is reaching even beyond the sum of its tasty parts – I aimed at a drinkable yet sophisticated wine and humbly think I succeeded, haha. Vulcanica is elegant, creamy and layered, with exciting tertiary tones and surprising flavours popping on the palate – showing perfectly what this method, although non-traditional, offers compared to the simpler, more primary pet-nats. The volcanic character is undeniable here: the wine is spicy, temperamental and with no posturing, just like the people and vineyards of the region where this wine is born.
