A bit nervous also very happy to officially open the vintage season in Sonberk.
In addition to having an exciting program for the extended Easter weekend, you can finally taste all this year's news. What are they? At Sonberk we have traditionally made two types of wines, called Grand Cru and Silver Sonberk. The first ones are the wines we have especially „played with“, from later harvests, often from older vineyards and suitable for archiving. Enjoy the big dry trio: Riesling, Tramin and Pálava, all in the year 2016. "Riesling is our flagship, he is still young, but we look forward to him in the future. It has juicy acid and tones of minerality."
Tramín is again a variety that historically belongs to Popice, one of Pálava's parents. This year's elegant wine with a finer aroma than we know at Pálava, you will find cloves, cinnamon, white flowers. It is not very fragrant, it is pleasantly relieved by fine acid, "says Sonberk sales director Dáša Fialová.
It is even more interesting with Pálava, we are presenting two Pálavas this year. In Great Sonberk it is our dry classic, this time in 2016. "This is a long-awaited successor to the year 2015, which was the world's finest dry aromatic wine according to the Decanter World Wine Awards. The new Dry Pálava from 2016 is a lot of spicy, but also grape, fruity, and there are also tones of tropical fruit, " says Dáša.
What you may have had in your glass, that is our cuvée made from 60 percent Chardonnay and 40 percent Pinot Gris. We made a really great job with him - the 2015 wine matured for 12 months in barrique barrels. Wine has come out of them, which has been selected by the 100 best Czech Wine Salon, which is the information that keeps us warm after the few weeks since we got it. And lovers of fresher and more vivid wines we will please with our new Sauvignon, vintage 2017.
