Harvest 2018

News . September 2018
We have started to pick grapes in Kurdějov for the very first sparkling wine from the GURDAU winery. We have a blend of Riesling, Grüner Veltliner and Pinot Blanc already in our cellar. The next batch of grapes to come will be Riesling for the classic range “Vesnice Kurdějov” and grapes from the best locations will be picked for the premium range wines, which are matured in large barrels.

This Pinot Blanc has a lemon yellow colour with a hint of gold. The lifted bouquet showcases intense pears, apricots and honeydew melon. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied with flavours of stone fruits, quince and grapefruit.
