This is made from 100% Blaufränkisch (Known as Frankovka Modrá in Slovakia) , hand harvested, crushed and left to ferment on skins for 4 weeks before ageing in Slovak oak barrels for 15 months. This has an intense ruby red colour and a taste of juicy sour cherry and dark berry fruits, with a long finish and lingering acidity. Great for ageing too which will further develop it's velvety texture.
Martin and Vlado are friends who started making wine together and set up marvlaTINDO in 2009. Through the wines they represent the local terroir of central Slovakia, especially highlighting its unique volcanic soils.
