Nestarec Transcendent Rosé: Wie schön ist das denn, nicht nur die Handbemalte Flasche natürlich auch der Inhalt!
Funky Glouglou Rosé, wie ihn wohl nur Milan kann: Direkt gepresster Regent trifft schalenvergorenen Neuburger und Riesling – kinda crazy!
Super frische rote Waldfrucht, Cassis und Preiselbeere, helle Hefewürze (ein Teil der Fässer entwickelte eine Florhefe-Schicht), Blutorange und etwas Küchenkräuter. Turbosaftig, hefig-salzig, leicht minzig-kräutrig und sooooooo trinkig. Transcendentally good! Viel mehr davon, bitte !
How Milan describes his wine:
A leap of faith towards the Existenz of florescence
My original idea was to sit on it a bit more but then, in early 2020, my importers literally vacuum-cleaned all my Forks & Knives Rosé, before the rosé season even started. And I hate to see a damsel in distress. And always have sth up my sleeve (= down in my cellar). And I tasted this wild child and saw it’s ready – Transcendent #1 was born.
Transcendent #2 became a bit more of a deliberate affair, helped by the fact that the wine was really good and again, disappeared in no time. One vintage only (2020), otherwise all as we know it, and even more delicious. Bright intense pink but the wine retains white-wine character exactly as I hoped. A bit of nuttiness, but just oh-so-subtle to make the overall composition even more interesting
The name comes from a typical “distracted winemaker” story: for the “label” of this wine, I experimented with a can of bright pink spray whose label read “Fluorescent”. This somehow mutated in my mind overnight so I thought the spray was called “Transcendent”, and liked that a lot as a sign, because what goes more beyond our usual perceived reality than a rosé under flor?! The next day, I was a bit sad to discover that my conceptually perfect puzzle of wine and its name was a fallacy and that the spray is actually called Fluorescent.. but hey, that doesn’t make the wine any less transcendental, right?
Each bottle a hand-painted original with label by me, the distracted winemaker helped by my dear wife, my sister and the mighty Transcendental paint.
