Jil - 2019


This one is from a beautiful, balanced south-oriented vineyard called Jung. A 2-hectare plot in Moravský Žižkov, with vines up to 35 years old and quite low yields (20 hl/ha, compared to the 100hl allowed in the area). 

JIL is quite the character, full of desire and rebelliousness, but also hope. A wine just at the beginning of its journey – and boy, do we look forward to seeing where this road takes us…

The name is actually inspired by the Czech word for clay, jíl, but you can put all sorts of meanings in it: Jung Is Love, Jumping In Luxury, Just Incredibly Lush, Jeeesus I'm Lucky, Jeeesus I'm Lost, Joyful–Intense–Layered...

An elegant and balanced Blaufränkisch. The year 2019 in fact was a great year for the winery with stable weather and plenty of sunshine. The wine has gained lots of complex aromas like chocolate, peppermint and black olive as well as blackberry, raspberry and a hint of wood.
