A traditional method sparkling wine made with Muller-Thurgau, Moravian Muscat and Pinot Gris. Quite fancy actually... golden and lovely white foam. A bit of spice in the nose, elderflower, apricot and mineral hints too. Medium bodied, juicy yet still quite fresh and summery too. Fantastic first sparkling release.
Naboso is a wine project by our friends Nadja and Andrej from the cute little village of Svaty Jur, just outside Bratislava in the Lower Carpathian mountain range. They are the kind of the people who for just about everyone who meets them quickly considers them friends. Warm, unpretentious and welcoming into their charming home/winery/pottery workshop. Naboso is just the beginning and end of their day. They both work for other wineries across the border in Austria as "day jobs" as well as run a pottery business and a bunch of other projects. Busy is an understatement. And if these wines are just the beginning.... sheeeesh, what lies ahead is just scary... in the best way.
A feature of all of their wines (and possibly some order to their busy lives) is that all of their wines are given at least a year in barrel and 2 in bottle before release. It shows through in the absolutely alluring drinkability of all their wines.
