Great wine from a great winemaker. Some of South Moravia's finest. Another example of why we've fallen so deeply in love with this variety. Fresh, juicy and rich berry and stone fruits. Spicy, and long finish. The sort of thing I would happily sit around drinking forever. Just a delight. A reason to live. Obsessed.
Ota is one of the most respected natural winemakers in Czechia. He farms 2 ha of vineyards in the villages of Čtvrtě Kraví Hora. One of the things with natural wine is that it requires a lot of attention to detail. So when we talk about these small producers with small vineyards its much more than just about quaintness, it's a practical necessity that the vineyard area is manageable without letting areas slip (and attract disease or over-ripen etc). Many of the great natural winemakers actually limit themselves specifically to what they themselves, and/or their families can personally manage alone. Ota's wines are distinct and pure. You can taste the love and attention to detail.
