Sonberk Czech Republic

Pálava, 2015

Not Specified

Mikulov, Moravia 75cl

A first for me. Sonberk have done amazingly well in the Decanter World Wine Awards 2017, winning one of the top 34 Platinum Best in Show awards for this the Pávlava, and a Platinum award for their Riesling too.
So this is made with the Pávlava grape, a great name for us in the uk!
From the Mikulov region in Moravia. It's a full quite rich style. Ripe pear with hints of grape, dried herb, spice too.
Weighty with lovely fruit, lots of spice, ripe pear, hints of musk, almost barley sugar, stone fruit-peach and herb, I guess not totally unlike Pinot Gris in style.
Its very distinctive and really quite appealing and for sure would make a great food wine. Really interesting.
