2017 Strekov 1075 "Heion", 750ml

Availability: In stock (5)

An epic orange wine made of the central European variety known as Welschriesling. This is not the same grape as Riesling, in fact it is unrelated. Organic agriculture, all hand harvested, left unflitered at bottling. Small production, only 800 bottles made.

Notes from 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."
