Slobodné Grüner Veltliner 'Smetana'Tabula Rasa Shop
100% Grüner Veltliner
An extremely exciting and unique wine with tiny soft bubbles, a creamy tropical taste, and a zesty citrus finish. "Smetana" translations to "Creamy" in Czech, but it is also a nod to famous composer, Bedrich Smetana who is pictured on the label!
Zemianske Sady is a family run estate that has been making wine in Hlohovec since 1912. At its inception, the estate was primarily a tobacco farm that also produced wines which sold locally and were beloved by the art scene in Prague. Due to the war and political strife, the estate stopped production until 1997, where now, the fourth and fifth generations have taken over.
The vineyards were replanted and the cellar reconstructed, and in 2010, the first vintage under the name Slobodné Vinárstvo was born. In 2016, they began farming their 17 hectares in an environmentally conscious way, and became members of the oldest biodynamic farmers association.
