Cultivars used: Pinot Blanc, Sylvaner, Rheinriesling, Gewürztraminer
A glimmering gold colour. A complex, honey-like scent with gentle aromas of warm butter, cream and blossoming roses. A full, mineral, almost salty taste with undertones of dried fruit, cream and hint of pleasurable acidity.
The wine is simply magnificent when combined with lightly smoked poultry, larded meat or rich quarry meat on white wine.
We decided to go against Chzech tradition and create a cuvee that is a combination of the best grapes and combines the quality of the individual cultivars and brings it to the next level. We wanted to create a wine that will be a well-rounded, GREAT WINE with a strong flavor and a bouquet that offers interesting mineral salinity. Involved in the mixing of the wine were prominent sommeliers and wine merchants, who have had ample experience with domestic products, as well as with products from abroad. We tested various mixing ratios until we unanimously agreed on the best possible version, which we are now happy to share with you. We believe that you will love JOHANN W white as much as we do.

Vineyard Our most romantic vineyard track. The lines of this 4-hectar vineyard run down the South slope of the hill towards historic town of Libochovice. Thanks to its position, the vineyard bathes in the sun all day long. As the hill was created about 25 million years ago by a volcanic eruption, the bedrock underneath a half-meter layer of black soil is formed in 100% by basalt igneous rock, with weathered lava stones sticking out above the ground, which work as heat accumulators. On the top of the hill, there is the ancient castle of Hazmburk, which - thanks to its towers - is visible from afar, and counts among the dominants of the region of České středohoří. Wines produced form grapes from this vineyard track are strong and uniquely mineral.
