Vino Z Czech Pinot Blanc Vyskocil 2009

File this under wine from weird places. In this case, the Czech Republic.

Maybe not so weird, though. Turns out the area has a storied history of grape growing and wine making, and it shows in this wine, which is quite good. I brought it to Christmas dinner because I thought my Czech relatives would get a kick out of it, but we were all pleasantly surprised at how tasty it was.

Tastes strongly of lemon with lots of minerality. Not sure if the fact that this was a 2009 meant the acidity had faded a bit or if that’s the nature of this wine, but it’s a soft, clean and very easy drinking wine. Solid.

This importer is actually bringing a variety of Czech wines into the U.S., and now I hope to get around to tasting all of them. As a bonus, all of the labels look really pretty.

I like to drink and write about wine. I'm an equal opportunity drinker, but gravitate toward France, the Pacific Northwest and up-and-comers like New York and Virginia.
