Vronski, Slobodne 2018
Sauvignon Blanc. Zemianske Sady, Slovakia
100% Sauvignon Blanc from Slovakia with some very mild skin-contact though this is more of a white than it is an 'orange.' Fermented in open vats with partial skin contact for about 7 days. Very mild extraction. Pressed, then aged in ovoid egg tank for 8 months. Unfined, unfiltered, hardly any so2 added.
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.
