Grapes - Frankovka
Where - Nitra Slovakia
What - Two very close friends called Martin and Vlado created Marvla Tindo to continue their shared passion for showcasing the best grapes of the area in the most sustainable way possible. To kick start this, they set up shop on the slopes of the Sitno volcano. These porous rock surfaces are poor in organic matter which make them ideal for grape growing.
Organic Frankovka is hand harvested, destemmed and naturally fermented in polymer tanks before aging in a mix of 200l old oak barrels and 300l new oaks for a period of 12 months. If you're excited about trying a Frankovka, this is the one to bet on.
The Marvla Tindo Frankovka is bold and intense with notes of bramble, blueberry, cedar, souk spice, pepper and earth. After trying their Frankovka, we'll be keeping an eye on this talented duo to see what they produce next.
Spicy, exotic, moreish. Vegan. Organic. Low intervention. 13.5% ABV.
