Born of a winemakers indecision, Barvířka came about when Milan couldn't make up his mind about whether to rip out the Dornfelder his father had planted. Finally instead of ripping it out, he decided to blend it with Zweigelt and a secret blend of white wines.
The name means “colour-enhancer” in Czech, as Dornfelder is one of the red grapes that also has red pulp and hence gives wines of intense ruby-violet hue, used sometimes in blends to deepen the colour.
Classical maceration on skins, with gentle punch-downs in open-top vats, then rest on lees for a bit less than a year. No carbonic, no tinkering in the cellar, just time, old-school "normal" methods and simplicity.
Ink-black with low tannins, low alcohol, and high drinkability. Best served chilled, with just about any easy meal.
