Type: Orange Wine
Grape: Tramín Červený (Gewürztraminer)
The Kasnyik family is one of the founding members of the “Autentista Slovakia” association that has now grown to include 5 producers including Slobodné Vinárstvo, Magula, Mátyás, and Strekov 1075. The association has strict guidelines on farming, cellar practices, and how to ultimately restore and preserve the culture of wine along the Danube. The area is very much a crossroads in Central Europe and the epicenter of winemaking in Slovakia.
Grapes are fermented on the skins in open vats for about 3 weeks. It spent a year on the lees in Hungarian barrel before being bottled unfiltered with a small addition of sulfur.
This Tramín has the most acidity, the least amount of residual sugar, and the lowest alcohol of all of Kasnyik's wines. The aromatics are pronounced, but not perfume-y in an artificial way.
