Gewurztraminer macerated for several hours on skins then left on fine lees in acacia barrels for 10 months. Floral with tropical fruits and some decent body to it too. Acacia barrels are traditional to the areas winemaking and Jaroslav is an expert in their application. As with all of his wines, this is a wonderfully balanced expression of the variety with plenty of local character.
Jaroslav Osička is one of the pioneers of natural wine-making in Czechia and actually taught/influenced the craft when he taught at the local wine college. He has been farming organically since the early 80's, quite early for any winery, anywhere. I love the sincerity of each of his wines. They carry a balance that is so tight, so delicately nurtured. These may not be "sexy" or "cool" wines, but they are fucking incredible wines. And it's not just me saying this, his wines are in demand globally. You can find his wines on some of the finest restaurants and wine bars from Japan to North America and also now, in... Lithuania!
