Feteasca Alba is the name of this obscure varietal from Nitra, Slovakia an ancient, yet under-rated wine region. It spends 3 weeks on the skins, for a chewy and tannic finish but the mid palate is very elegant with enough acid to keep the whole experience in balance. The volcanic soils give this orange-y wine an alluring ashy minerality, lots of zest and earthy aromatics, for a unique and compelling bottle of wine.
