2016 Strekov Rozalia,750ml

Availability: In stock (4)

A funky, wildly fermented dry pet-nat rose that is mostly St. Laurent with a touch of Alibernet grown in Slovakia. Super-natural juice (pun intended) that has nothing at all added and is fermented unguarded from it surroundings. Capped before fermentation finishes to capture the last of the CO2 for a sparkling wine. Plus it sorta looks like a lava lamp or a nigori sake with pink lemonade added.

From the mouth of the importer (Jenny & Francois):

"Zsolt Sütó cultivates 12 hectares of vines in the village of Strekov, in Slovakia. The vineyards are located on the terraces of Pohronska pahorkatina, featuring ponds and marshland that creates a unique microclimate. The top layer of soil consists of clay-loam, which lays above the marine sediments, sandstone and limestone veins. Deeper soil layers consist of yellow and blue-gray clay. Zsolt’s fermentations take place in open topped barrels with no sulfur and no intervention, he also uses a lot of skin maceration, aging under voile to create naturally strong and stable wines."
