Cutis Deviner, Slobodne 2017
Devin - Traminer. Zemianske Sady, Slovakia
Slobodne's trademark orange wine is back with a striking new vintage. This is a blend of the two local aromatic grapes Devin and Traminer, it spends 4 weeks on its skins and is aged for two years in old oak barrels. It has bonkers aromatics of flowers, lychees, tropical fruit and spices, yet on the palate it shows more restraint with a real grapefruit zest and a complex finish.
Slobodné Vinárstvo, represents an integral part of Majer Zemianske Sady, a family farm established in 1912, located in hills above the river Váh, not far from the town of Hlohovec, Slovakia. Majer has been rebuilt after the revolution of 1989, and in 2010 they decided to re-establish the family wine making tradition. Slobodné now make wine strictly from the grapes harvested from their own 17ha vineyard using both wine growing and wine making techniques that are in harmony with the nature surrounding them. Their ambition is to offer pure wines, true to the quality of the terroir and honouring the reputation of the Hlohovec wine region. Slobodné vinárstvo aka The Free Winery underlines a concept of freedom in its countless forms and meanings, which defines their families way of life.
