Please note this vintage just in. The image shows the previous vintage still and will be updated seen.
Krasna Hora – Riesling 2016/17 is a classic, elegant expression of the King of Grapes – Riesling. It is bone dry with aromas of white apricots, lemon curd, lemon zest shine through. With a racy acidity and lovely minerality.
This could match up to a classic German Riesling in terms of acidity and structure. As the wine aerates it gets even richer and shows amazing complexity.
Ideal with white fish, seafood, white meats and spicy Mediterranean and asian dishes.
Krasna Hora – Riesling is suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

The Moravian 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 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.
