‘Slobodne’ literally means ‘freedom’ & speaks volumes of their long family struggle against various political forces to hold on to their estate, their escape from the corporate world to a life in nature, and of course the freedom they take in experimenting with their wines. Now run by 2 sisters & their partners, these guys are causing a real stir in the natty world with their epic skin contact offerings. This baby is a deep coloured Pinot Gris that spent two weeks on its skins and 18 months in steel tanks & the ‘17 vintage is freaking incredible. Smacking of floral influence, stone fruits, red fruits, guava and so much more…she’s the perfect combo of funky & fresh.
