When summarizing Milan’s work we would like to start by quoting our dear friend Marko Kovac, cofounder of Central Europe’s most respected Salon - Karakterre: 'There really should be a division to BMC and AD in the Czech Republic. That’s Before Milan Nestarec & Anno Domini. Not to say that he is the reincarnation of Christ. But he did show the way for many who today make Eastern Europe one of the world’s most exciting & vibrant wine regions. Milan's name is on many of grower’s lips there. (To the point that “like Nestarec” really should become Moravia dictionary’s proper entry).
Yet, what does it really mean to be Nestarec...as Milan himself is changing and now coming to a phase of greater than ever precision & elegance of wines. Plus, the dedication to pure low intervention wines is undisputed here. Now taken to the next level, one where the winegrower himself is growing up & with the best vintages still to come. Milan's latest releases from 2017 and 2018 are yet another impressive showcase how hard work in the vineyard combined with a great deal of patience (his wines spent at least two winters and one full summer in the cellar for the main cuvées, making all the difference for minimum intervention wines to showcase a great deal of terroir and quality without the use of SO2). Even though to this date Milan works with a variety of Czech and Austrian varieties, his style has become a style of his own giving varieties like Neuburger (in his TRBLMKR) and Grüner Veltliner a completely different direction, yet making them somewhat future classics of Central Europe.
I'm not much of a cocktail drinker, so I had to make a G&T of my own… One of our most famous wines. When the 2015 juice (our first edition of this wine) was fermenting, its aroma was super reminiscent of juniper berries and its slightly bitter aftertaste of tonic water. As a result, 1) everybody in the winery was constantly tasting it on barrel (I was afraid if there would even be some wine left for the outside world) 2) it earned “GT” as a working title scribbled on the barrel–a name that has stuck with it ever since.
