The Venn diagram has three circles, “easy drinking” “complex” and “unusual” with Fred#7 sat in the middle. Its made to be a fun, light hearted wine but using three different grape varieties, each from a different vintage, they have created something that is still has plenty of substance. The fruit is juicy and it has a lovely line of acidity making it very refreshing. The wine also has body and a moreish / spicy / earthy quality. Strekov 1075 are one of a kind in our books. They make delicious and unusual wines!
Half of the Portugieser has been foot-crushed, the rest de-stemmed. The juice was fermented spontaneously for 2 weeks in open vats. The Alibernet and the Portugieser have been aged in 300 – 500l Zemplén oak barrels, while The Dunaj stayed in stainless steel tank for 6 months. Bottled unfined and unfiltered without the addition of SO2.

Zsolt Sütő started to work on 12 hectares of land near the village of Strekov in Slovakia in 2002. 7 years later he converted his plots to sustainable farming. The region’s microclimate ensures a long optimal ripening season, as the temperature is moderated by the Danube river. The top layer of soil consists of clay-loam, which lies above the marine sediments, sandstone and limestone veins.
Zsolt cultivates his vines by hand and trains them mainly as bush vines in order to force their roots to go deeper, making them less sensitive to drought. This also allows him to naturally keep the yield extremely low at 25hl/ha.
In the cellar the wines ferment spontaneously in barrels and open vat fermenters without any intervention. Zsolt prefers to keep the wines on their lees and to avoid the use of sulphur as much as possible.
