Vulcanica is a clever, near perfect sparkling wine. A kaleidoscopic sparkling melange of local Pesecká Leánka, and Pinot Gris that Marek endlessly tinkers with. As the multi vintage components would indicate it expresses youth alongside maturity. In terms of acidity and alcohol, Leánka is well suited to sparkling wine, but when it is fresh it is overtly perfumy. Given time in the barrel much of the aroma dissipates. The addition of pinot gris lends structure and body. The long elevage rounds the wines and results in fine bubbles. It is a wine without direct parallel, and the signature of the cellar.
