Type: Red Wine
Zsolt Sütó organically cultivates 12 hectares of vines in the village of Strekov, in Slovakia. The vineyards are located on the terraces of Pohronska pahorkatina, featuring ponds and marshland that creates a unique microclimate. The top layer of soil consists of clay-loam, which lays above the marine sediments, sandstone and limestone veins. Deeper soil layers consist of yellow and blue-gray clay. Zsolt’s fermentations take place in open topped barrels with no sulfur and no intervention, he also uses a lot of skin maceration, aging under voile to create naturally strong and stable wines. As of the 2017 vintage. Zsolt has vinified and bottled all of his wines without the addition of any sulfur.
Medium-bodied, earthy and funky. A non-vintaged blend of two obscure, cold-resistant grape varieties, Dunaj and Alibernet. Stemmy cherry fruit, allspice, and a touch of barnyard. Rustic and lovely with a light chill.
