A ten-day maceration of hybrid white variety Devin (created in a Slovakian lab in 1958, the result of crossing Gewurztraminer and Roter Veltliner) and Traminer (a central European cousin of the Jura’s Savagnin) has left this rich with pithy, zippy grapefruit-tinged fruit and huge, floral aromatics. This is the sort of wine that feels that it’ll reveal endless layers the longer it’s open.

Slobodné

Slovakian winemaking, despite its many similarities to the perhaps more familiar winemaking culture of Austria’s east, remains resolutely under-the-radar but the family behind Trnava’s Slobodné Vinárstvo are working hard to change all that. Working a 17-hectare patchwork of grapes both familiar and less so (Devin anyone?) they are crafting the kind of wines that have put eastern Europe at the very centre of the natural wine conversation. These are delicious, wildly original wines worth a place in any cellar.
