Pivnica Cajkov Vulcanica Pet Nat 2016
The Pivnica Cajkov Vulcanica is a fantastic Pet Nat which is from Slovakia. Its history started in the year 1666 when Archbishop of Estergom’s awarded the winemaker’s family seal entitling them to trade wine agricultural products. Since then generation after generation made wine. Marek, the winemaker behind the winery is the latest generation. He is true to the family history and creates wines as his grand-grandfather did. Working in the volcanic terroir of Tekov, his wines are amazing minerality and refreshing acidity.
The Pivnica Cajkov Vulcanica Pet Nat is a super fine sparkling wine made from Pesecká Leánka (Feteasca Regala) and Bratislavská Leánka (local clone) of 2015 with the fermenting juice from Pesecká Leánka 2016. Wine of the ’16 vintage is rested on fine lees for a year in stainless steel tanks. There is a lovely biscuity note with hints of green pears, and a refreshing acidity and pinching bubbles.
