100% Sauvignon Blanc
Viticulture: Organic (non- certified)
Vineyards: The grapes come from their very own “Lopata” and “Stavný Háj” vineyards
in their town of Zemianske Sady. The Hlohovec wine region’s history dates back to the 14th century when planting rights were first granted. The vineyards have a South and Southwest exposition and have vines ranging from 10 to 35 years years old. They practice beekeeping in the parcels and encourage a wide amount of biodiversity. Their 17 hectares of vines form a small part of their 350ha farm, where they tend to livestock and also
grow poppies, barley, wheat, rapeseed, and more.
Vinification: 2/3 of the
grapes were pressed, and
the remaining 1/3 was added to the fermentation vats as whole bunches for a sort of ‘partial’ skin contact. The wine remained in contact with the skins for 7 days, before being pressed and returned to tank to finish fermentation. It was then transferred to terracotta eggs where it stayed on the lees for just under one year. Unfiltered.
Other: ‘Jantar’ means ‘Amber’ in Slovak. Jantara is ‘the Amber one’
