Country of origin: Czech Republic
Wine appellation: Moravia, Znojmo sub-appellation
Vintage: 2014
Alcohol content: 12.0%

This is the ultimate pick for me in this price range. 2014 was extremely difficult vintage. Lots of rain and diseases, very low production, but this Chard is amazing, Very very expressive nose, the grapes for sure must have had the botrytis. Had excellent experience with their 2013 vintage, which I bought a case and this would deserve the case to be purchased as well. It would age fantastically.
