Slobodne have been farming on land in Zemianske Sady near Hlohovec since 1912. Now being managed by forth and fifth generations they have a rich history that includes the loss and regaining their land during the second world war. Their 17 hectares are all worked organically and biodynamically and they are the oldest producers in Slovakia to work this way. Their wines made with white grapes typically involve skin macerations.

Supermajer is a maceration of Grüner Veltliner, up until now the only orange wine we have listed using this grape! The skin maceration really brings out the white pepper aromas that are often more nuanced, and like all the Slobodne wines using white grapes, the pithy citrus character comes to the fore too - here with lots of mouthwatering white grapefruit. One of the more delicate expressions from this producer, but certainly not lacking complexity.
