Ok so first things first - ignore the label, I know it's awful and I know It looks like Gordon Ramsey designed this circa 1996. 

The wine is truly spectacular though. Tomas sadly passed away NYE 2018. An ex chef who moved to the countryside to make beautiful wines. He said he tried all the “modern” ways, only to soon realise that rather than making better wines he was coming under the dictate of the technology. As such, his wife Zdena now runs the show using low intervention techniques in the winery and strictly organic in the vineyard. 

 

This is an unfiltered Blaufrankisch, or known locally as Frankovka. Delicate, ethereal, haunting in its perfume of violets and rose and intense baked strawberry on the palate. If this had a cool label we'd be able to sell it at £40 I tell ya!
