The grapes are from 40 year old vines on clay and calcareous soil from Weingut Nägele in Baden. After picking, they were left in the cold overnight performing a cold maceration. The next day they were pressed and the juice was transferred into 500L barrels to ferment and age.
This year the winemakers Antoine Lucchesi and Daisy Merrick have decided not to disgorge the wine. Meaning the yeast particles are still inside the bottle. Therefore your wine may look a little cloudy.
The notes are of green apple, with creamy mouthfeel, lots of little bubbles all over the tongue, slightly wild.
IMPORTANT / WHAT TO KNOW BEFORE OPENING THE BOTTLE:

This is an exotic Silvaner, with a creamy mouthfeel, fresh and elegant with a lightly stewed tea characteristic. There are some hints of CO2 on the tongue from the maceration, which lift off with a little exposure to oxygen. The grapes come from Andi Mann's vineyard in Eckelsheim, from 25 year old vines on sandstone soil. Whole bunches of grapes were transferred into a tank and left to undergo full carbonic maceration for 3 weeks.
No added sulphites.

Another delicious Welschriesling from Vykoukal's winery which is a great expression of the Austerlitz terroir. What's so typical for wines from this area? The soil here has a high amount of limestone and magnesium which give the wine a beautiful mineral character with almost salty and mildly bitter notes on the palate that intensify with further bottle ageing. This Welschriesling 2018 has a rich yellow colour (thanks to 48 hours of skin contact/fermentation on skins before pressing), it's bone dry, with floral and fruity aromatics. It exhibits floral notes of acacia, linden, and honey while the palate is well structured with just a pop of acidity, followed by nuanced flavours of citrus fruits and green apples.

This wine could become Czech Marada’s flagship wine, as each year gets more and more divine. Notes of rose hips, honeysuckle, and lychee on the bouquet are perfectly tempered by the light to medium tannic structure on the palate. Approximately 14 days maceration on the full berries for that deep orange color. This wine is both full of classic Gewürztraminer aromatics and more subtle, unique characteristics, not often found in the more over the top (slightly sugarier) wines in this style.
This wine fits almost anything aside from very charred red meat. Could stand up to pork ribs as well as it could pair with delicate fish.Fermented spontaneously using low-intervention
Ryšák (‘red head’) is a distinctly Czech wine style, which is a blend of red and white grape varieties. In this case it’s ⅔ Blaufränkisch and ⅓ Chardonnay. This marriage results in an easy-drinking, playful wine with aromas of honeysuckle, chamomile, banana, red fruit and vanilla. Best served at room temperature, but can also be slightly chilled and enjoyed on a hot day.

On the 29th of September 2022, winemakers Daisy Merrick and Antoine Lucchesi picked the Riesling grapes from Weingut Achenbach in Neu Bamberg, Rheinhessen from 30+ year old vines on sandstone soil.
This wine has been bottled with some residual sugar (as fermentation was slow in 2022), so you may hear a small 'pop' when you open the bottle with some delicate effervescence tickling your tongue.
It has some great acidity and richness in the mouth from the barrel aging. Almost like brioche on the palate with some caramel notes, it is an interesting Riesling to discover. Drink now or age it longer in the bottle for 1 - 3 years to experience its full potential.
**Even though this wine is in a sparkling wine bottle, it is a still wine.**
