Milan Nestarec - Danger 770 Volts -2022 - 11,5% - Magnum 1,5L - regio Moravia

Dangerously drinkable. Approach at your own risk.

Its origins were truly dangerous: the first time I tried to make sparkling wine in 2012, I bottled it with too much residual sugar and my warehouse became a military zone, with bottles randomly exploding here and there. 5000 of them. It took me a bit of time to digest the fact that all this wine and work had gone down the drain, but I eventually got over it and tried again. Fast forward to spring 2017: we're tasting my second iteration with my wife and it is... freaking awesome! So refreshing, so energetic. As we were drinking this electrifying wine, right next to us, no kidding, stood an electric transformer adorned with that notorious “Danger 380V” sign. And bang! The name & label were born in a sec.

We always make it from the same single vineyard, our sandy plot called Sahary, so it's a field blend of Neuburger (for personality), Muller (for drinkability), and Muscat (for some aromatic oomph).

The wine is so dangerously drinkable that we bottle it also as a magnum (770V) and cute half-bottles called 230V – for when you need that extra jolt of energy but isostar ain't your thing .)

The seventh edition of this wine. The same Sahary field blend as in
previous vintages, this time with a bit higher proportion of Neuburger which gave us a beautiful yield after a few years of rest. Lower ABV, perfect drinkability, very gentle bubbles, and approachable character. It’s the kind of wine that I’m happy to drink anywhere, anytime, so I made some half-bottles as well, called Danger 230 Volts (like the ubiquitous household power supply, wink wink). A cute little bottle that will fit right in your pocket, no matter where you go…

2022 was a very dry and hot year, with only 421 mm of rainfall (= about 100 mm less than average) and 32+days with temperatures exceeding 30 °C between June and August. While the younger vineyards visibly suffered, the older vineyards coped very well, and we did our best to adapt the vineyard management, in order to
keep as much shade and water as possible. The temperatures dropped radically at the end of August and the ripening became very slow, thanks also to the nearly–constant September rain. Fortunately, warmer weather returned in October and saved the vintage’s reputation, especially for late varieties such as my beloved Gruner Veltliner and Blaufrankisch. Fermentations in general
were slower than usual (not just in our region but more or less in the whole of Central Europe, afaik), but in the end, the wines are tasty, aromatic and accessible, with lower acidity and lower ABV, ready to be drunk quickly
