Orange On Leaves 2023

Korab

Mostly Gewurtztraminer, a bit of Hibernal and Gruner Veltliner. About 10 days on skins with addition of dried vine leaves to the maceration tank. Bottled before the finishing of fermentation.

Unique orange pet-nat with pleasant herbal and zesty aromatics, nice acidity, gentle tannins, hints of citrus, caramel, peach; fresh and drinkable.
WHY “ON LEAVES”? Petr (the producer) spotted mentioning of adding dried leaves of the vines in the fermentation tank in an old book about winemaking in South Moravia. He tried it once and noticed that it adds some nice extra acidity, herbal character and particular tannins while protecting the wine from getting spoiled.

Korab

Moravia Czech Republic

Established in 2006, Korab's Winery, a Moravian family endeavor in Boleradice, focuses on cultivating grapes from ancient vineyards, emphasizing spontaneous fermentation and authenticity. Managing nearly 4 hectares of vineyards, including 84-year-old plots, the winery embraces organic practices and strives to rediscover forgotten winemaking traditions.

Led by Petr Korab (former cook and an , the winery follows a biodynamic approach, cultivating vines on diverse subsoils for red and white grape varieties. Korab's commitment to minimalism extends to winemaking, avoiding additives and letting the vineyards dictate the process.

Petr Korab's playful spirit is showcased in a unique anecdote involving goats, reflecting the winemaker's unconventional approach. The cellar, resembling a child's drawing, serves as the backdrop for tastings, highlighting Korab's dedication to controlled minimalism.

The wines, from lively pet-nats like Lemonade to profound reds like Saint Laurent, capture Korab's artistry. Noteworthy is the Orange Future Sekt, a traditional sparkling wine with white peach and brioche flavors, poised for graceful aging.

Beyond the cellar, Korab's Winery prioritizes sustainability and community impact, leading the "Autentisté!" group - a local formation of like-minded winemakers. As a beacon of pure Moravian winemaking, Korab's Winery harmonizes tradition, experimentation, and a deep connection to the land, producing captivating wines that honor the region's heritage.
