A light and herbal white of Sauvignon from the Lesser Carpathian region of Slovakia. Farming is biodynamic, the wine is fermented with indigenous yeasts, and filtered only with vegan friendly bentonite. The wine doesn't drink particularly like a heavily tannic 'orange' wine given its 5-10 day maceration on skins, but the skin contact does impart an intensity to the green notes of the grape. Incredibly herbal and salty with green pomelo rinds and cardamom. As it opens up it gains an undeniable aroma of jalapenos. Quite a different animal than your Bordeaux Blanc or New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.
