Red

$70.00

There are few wineries in the world comparable to Strekov 1075, named for the town it resides in and the year in which the town was founded.
Winemaker Zsolt Sütó cultivates 12 hectares of organically farmed vines in the southwest area of Slovakia, which is mostly culturally and linguistically Hungarian.
Frankovka (Blaufrankisch) hand harvested and partially destemmed, leaving some as whole bunches . The wine is fermented on the skins, with as much intracellular fermentation as possible for about 2 weeks in open topped vats. The wine is moved to barrels for 8 months of ageing and then is bottled unfined and unfiltered with zero sulfur added.
