Grape - Pinot Noir
Where - Moravia, Czech Republic
What - Formerly a soviet run winery, the Krasna Hora site is in the heart of Moravia; a hilly, volcanic area perfect for grape growing. Over recent years, the winery has been revived into the 21st century. Pinot Noir grapes are grown without sprays and harvested by hand. In keeping with the techniques explored in Burgundy, the grapes are fermented on wild yeasts in open oak vessels before being transferred into secondhand barrels for ageing. At bottling, the juice is kept hazy and sulphite use is minimal.
The Moravian climate makes for warm days and cold nights, so the resulting wines from Krasna Hora are always aromatic masterpieces with an unrivalled, mouthwatering acidity. They carefully control the yield of their vines for an intense concentration of fruit flavour.
Krasna Hora's Pinot Noir is a very Burgundian style of Pinot Noir. It beams with notes of strawberry, sour cherry, earth, chocolate and minerals. You'll really notice the length on the finish; goes on for days.
