Slobodne - Rebela Rosa 2021
Very moreish and textured rosé from one of Slovakia's most sought after producers. This blend of Blaufrankisch and Cabernet Sauvignon is fermented and aged in clay amphoras, and displays buckets of spice, tingly forest fruits, and just enough of a herbal edge to add interest whilst keeping it accessible. A delight, and suitable for all weather.
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.
