The Pivnice Cajkov Pinot Gris Volcanic 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 Pivnice Cajkov Pinot Gris is spontaneously fermented on the skins. It’s a non-press, free flow orange dry wine aged for 6 months in old oak barrels. There are meadow flowers with hints of honey on the nose. The taste kicks in with a small portion of residual sugar and continues with a round body with tiny portions of tannins. All supported with acidity which lingers on.
