Slobodne are making big moves in Slovakia, making natural wines of an orange skew. Here we have one of their more accessible bottlings - a fresh but complex skin-contact Sauvignon Blanc.
Partly fermented on skins for a week, then aged for a year in a concrete egg, this is hipster juice and I bloody love it.
Herbs and stone fruit come through, and the palate has lovely texture and sturdy structure with quite a light colour.
