Producer: Strekov 1075
Grapes: Alibernet, St. Laurent, and Blauer Portugieser
Geography: Slovakia

The blend is 50% Alibernet, 25% St. Laurent, and 25% Blauer Portugieser. However the Alibernet, a cross of Alicante Bouchet and Cabernet Sauvignon, is pressed off the skins immediately and thus treated more like a white wine that is then blended with the red wine made of the other two varieties. The result is a lighter red, well served by a decent chill. Bright and fresh with amazing berry tones. Native yeast fermentation, no filtering or fining, and bottled with zero addition of sulfur.

Strekov 1075 Description
"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. As of the 2017 vintage. Zsolt was very happy to vinify and bottle all of his wines with zero additions of sulfur." - Jenny & Francois
