Strekov 1075 Little Fred #3
Grape: Alibernet (a cross between Alicante Henri Bouschet and Cabernet Sauvignon), Dunaj (cross of Blauer Potugieser and Sankt Laurent), Portugieser
Vineyards: Clay Loam, Loess. Blend of different plots, all farmed organically by Zsolti himself.
Cellar: Grapes are hand-harvested and destemmed. A non-vintage blend of wines fermented in open casks and then aged in old oak for various amounts of time. Once blended, it’s bottled unfined, and unfiltered under crown cap, with zero addition of sulfur.
Personality: funky, earthy yet with fresh fruit, incredibly congenial. As Zsolti says, the F in the name stands for “friendly, fresh, but also f* good red” and he’s 100% correct on all accounts.
