Slobodne - Partisan Cru 2015
A lovely red blend of local varieties from Slovakia (Blaufränkisch, Cabernet, and Alibernet). The three varieties are aged separately in old oak barrels for 18 months before bottling. It has now been aging for three years in bottle and is nearing its drinking peak. Stunning black fruits and sweet spices in a lean, medium/light body. A refined and accessible wine but with its own distinct features. We are very excited to be able to offer out the last few cases of this sought-after vintage.
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.
