KRÁSNA HORÁ WINERY

The roots of our small, family winery go back to the early 1960s, when under the communist system, my grandfather planted our first vineyards.  Since that time, we have come a long way, and our focus now is on releasing high quality, biodynamic wines from small parcels of premium fruit after long and careful ageing in our cellar, located immediately behind our vineyard.

THE MORAVIA WINE REGION

Situated on the 49th parallel, at the very limit of where grapes can be grown in Central Europe, in the south-eastern corner of the Czech Republic, we enjoy a cool climate viticulture with big differences between day and night time temperatures.  Under these conditions, our wines have excellent aromatic expression along with mouth-watering acidity and freshness.

OUR VINEYARDS

Our vineyards are carefully tended by hand and biodynamic principles are implemented to produce grapes of the highest possible quality that express the terroir of our microclimate.  The use of herbal teas and specially prepared composts and manures enables us to avoid using any synthetic herbicides, pesticides or fertilizers.  Yields are carefully controlled to around 1.3 kg/vine in order to achieve the intensity and concentration of aromas and flavours that we are looking for.

OUR WINES

  2015 Pinot Noir Barrel Selection

Bright, pale ruby colored, the bouquet expresses a subtle perfume of roses, violets along with
cherries and with hints of earthy and woody tones. On the palate, the lightness and elegance of
the flavours are impressive. The red berry fruits are complemented by harmonious oak influence
and a long, clean, refreshing finish. This a Pinot Noir that continues to command your attention
as it evolves in the glass.
To experience all the nuances in this wine and to remove any harmless sediment that may
develop with time, please decant before serving at 16 - 18 degrees celsius. This Pinot Noir will
reach its peak after 5 - 7 years and can be drunk with a wide range of dishes, including duck and
game meat dishes.

2015 Sauvignon Blanc Barrel Selection

Only the cream of the crop makes it into this barrel selected wine. The brilliant, mid-yellow
colour is the prologue to a powerful yet elegant bouquet of tropical fruits, nuts, cream with just a
hint of herbs. On the palate, this full-bodied wine displays both roundness and intensity with a
wonderfully vibrant and crisp finish.
