Stapleton-Springer Ben’s Reserve 2016
Jaroslav Springer’s family has been making wine for 300 years. In 2004 he entered into partnership with the brothers Ben and Craig Stapletons to pursue production of the very best wines focussing on Burgundian varieties. Stapleton brothers are Americans, Craig is the former US Ambassador to the Czech Republic.
The winery is based in the village of Boretice in Velkopavlovicky wine region in Moravia, south-east of the Czech republic. They operate an organic or BIO regime since 2007. They believe this naturally helps to achieve high level of antioxidants in the grapes, a better taste and therefore better quality of wine. Their vineyard plots of Čtvrtě, Bratáčky, Haltýřky, Záhřebenské, Lumperky and Trkmanska are planted with 75% of Pinot Noir, 5% of Saint Laurent, 5% of Blau Portugieser, and 10 % of Chardonnay. Total area of vineyards is 20 hectares.
They are replacing the sorts of Blau Portugieser and St Laurent with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Their aim is to produce wines which are natural, truthful and full of life.
|Tasting Notes||This Pinot Noir is great testament to the quality of wines this grape delivers in Moravia. It is refined, elegant and has the classic red fruit, with weight on the palate.|
