Gewurtztraminer from northern Bohemia made with 4 months of skin contact in 600L open top fermenters. Naturally cloudy from never being fined or filtered, made without any additives save a tiny dose of sulfur at bottling. Aromatic and textured, good notes of dried flowers and preserved stone fruit.
From the mouth of the importer (Jenny & Francois):
"Aleš Svatoš is a 61-year-old laboratory scientist and chemist turned natural winemaker. He founded the Porta Bohemica winery in 2010, after many years of planning and studying on how to make natural wine. The vineyards are located in northern Bohemia, very close to Germany where Aleš works as a chemist, and their most important grape variety is Muller Thurgau. Wine grapes have been cultivated in this historic area since the 1th century. Velké Žernoseky is the appellation here, which has steep hills above the Elbe river."
