About: Slobodne are a fascinating family-run winery going back to the early 20th century. They rebuilt their farm over the past 25 years following a 50-yr break due to the hardships of WWII and then 40 years of communism. Now run by two sisters and their two partners, they are making some of the most exciting skin-contact wines around today.
This is a blend of the two local aromatic grapes that spend 4 weeks on skins and is aged for two years in old oak barrels. It's got really strong aromatics of flowers, lychees, tropical fruit and spices,but is very delicate with grapefruit zest notes and a complex finish. For fans of aromatic wines this is an absolute must.
