Slobodne - Supermajer 2018
Supermajer is the name given to the top Grüner Veltliner from the estate and only made in years where the quality justifies the name. The grapes are lightly macerated for a couple of weeks to create this delicate yet generous orange wine. Notes of tea leaves, sweet spices, and lime combine to make this a serious yet very moreish wine.
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.
