Viticulture: Organic Farming / Natural Wine
Vinification: Spontaneous fermentation in Zemplen Oak barrels followed by 8 months aging on fine lees. Unfined, unfiltered with no sulphur added.
What a wine this is. Medium bodied white that is packed full of green apples with a complex creaminess and hint of hazelnut on the palate. Super long finish with flavour all the way!
Zsolt Sütő started to work on 12 hectares of land near the village of Strekov in Slovakia in 2002. 7 years later he converted his plots to sustainable farming. The region has a microclimate that allows a long ripening season as the temperature is moderated by the Danube river. Clay-loam soils. The vines are trained into bush vines which mean yields are kept very low with extremely good quality.
