A leap of faith towards the Existenz of florescence

This rosé is a quirky looker: direct-press red juice added to an open vat where white grapes were already fermenting on skins. At first, it was a combo of Neuburger, Riesling and Regent (German hybrid, my father's 1990s heritage), the current No. 3 marries Pinot Blanc, Noir and BF, as we lost the Regent plot. All grapes have always come from our Slovenské vineyard, so it's a true field blend. The place here is more important than the grapes – it's a small part at the top of the slope, pure loess under chernozem topsoil.

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 is a hand-painted original with "label" sprayed on by me, the distracted winemaker helped by my team and the mighty Transcendental paint. Limited amount of magnums available.
