Dry skin contact white wine
50 % Pinot Blanc,
40 % Chardonnay,
10 % Pinot Gris
Styria (Štajerska), Slovenia
Continental cool climate, with cold winters and sunny, mild springs, with sun-drenching summers. The vineyards are located on a steep slopes (30-40˚) of hills above Loče with southern-exposure, at an altitude of 300-400 m above sea level. The soil made up of marl, clay and sand.
Embracing the minimal intervention approach in the cellar, hand-harvested grapes were processed separately. Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris were destemmed into small open top fermenters, spontaneously fermented on the skins for 14-21 days. Both wines were matured in 300-500 L used Slovenian oak barrels. Chardonnay was whole bunch pressed and spontaneously fermented in Slovenian and French oak barrels. After ten months of barrel aging the blend was created in stainless steel tanks and bottled unfiltered.
This youthful dry skin contact white wine opens with spicy aromas of dry wildflowers, apricots, pears and white tea with honey. The palate is bright, and the skin tannins are not aggressive. Earthy mid-palate leads to a long savory finish.
