Milan Nestarec - Transcendent n°3 - NV (2021-2022) - 12,5% - regio Moravia

A leap of faith towards the Existenz of florescence

The name comes from a typical “distracted winemaker” story: for the “label” of this wine, I experimented with a can of bright pink spray whose label read “Fluorescent”. This somehow mutated in my mind overnight so I thought the spray was called “Transcendent”, and liked that a lot as a sign, because what goes more beyond our usual perceived reality than a rosé under flor?! The next day, I was a bit sad to discover that my conceptually perfect puzzle of wine and its name was a fallacy and that the spray is actually called Fluorescent. But hey, that doesn’t make the wine any less transcendental, right?

Each bottle is a hand-painted original with "label" sprayed on by me, the distracted winemaker helped by my team and the mighty Transcendental paint.

Blend of the excellent, extraordinarily balanced 2021 and the warmer, generous 2022 vintage.

This third edition sees a shift from the previous Neuburg-Zweigelt-Regent combo (we don’t grow Regent anymore, it went away with a Dornfelder plot I decided to rip out) towards a happy marriage of two Pinots and my dear Blaufrankisch. What remains is the terroir,
our signature Slovenské loess plot, and the method of
macerating white grapes on skins with the direct-press
juice of the reds. Different different but same, this layered rosé is still a singular tasting experience of superposed, supercharged flavours. We also bottled a limited number of mags for extra pleasure.
