2018 Strekov 1075 Frankovka


Grapes: Frankovka (Blaufrankisch)

Vineyard: Mária Valley, organic-certified and farmed by Zsolt himself. Planted in 2009. The soil consists of clay-loam with a high amount of calcium on marine sediments subsoil.

Making of: Grapes are hand-harvested and fermented as whole bunches in open-topped vats, zero additions. The wine is moved to old oak barrels for 10 months of aging and then is bottled unfined and unfiltered, with zero sulfur added.

Personality: a must for all you lovers of this wonderful Central-European grape out there. Wonderful structure, soft tannins, peppery and earthy notes for days mingling with nice fruit.
