Eighteen months of ageing in barrels on the lees gives this 2017 Pinot Blanc the unmistakable character of breadiness with fruity tones of yellow melon and mango. The flavour is rich and extractive and at the same time dry with a pleasantly warming honey note, finished by a structured acidity.
The history of this winemaking family goes back to 1884 when the founder of the family winemaking tradition, Bartoloměj Stávek moved from Čejkovice to Němčičky in the Velkopavlovická wine making area of South Moravia. The father of Kamil Prokeš, František, continued in this family tradition in Velké Němčice, and was helped by Kamil from his eighth year. In 1999 Kamil began to dedicate himself full-time to viniculture and in 2004 he planted his first vineyard over 33 hectares of the Punta vineyard track in Velké Němčice.
Winery Kamil Prokeš was established in 2015 and focuses on a minimal "enological impact" (ie. minimising the use of contemporary chemical methods), the maintenance of the region's terroir, and, of course, on high quality. It produces excellent sparkling wine, produced using the classic method of a secondary fermentation in the bottle, and wine produced without any chemical additives and a minimal amount of sulphur dioxide.
