Wine region: Bela krajina
Variety: 80% Kerner, 20% Riesling
A modern and unique white blend from Kerner and Riesling. A local and original interpretation of Burgundy-like balanced wines from our vineyards: roundness and freshness are the guidelines.
The nose is complex and subtle with aromas reminiscent of white flowers, wild bushes and fruity notes of peach and fresh apricot. The mouthfeel is round, velvety with a fresh and lingering finish giving a long and vertical after taste. Kerner in acacia brings roundness, generosity, yellow fruit and floral character. Riesling brings vibrancy, freshness and complexity. Drink from now to 2025.
The philosophy here is to craft a modern white wine with a Burgundy like balance made from the varieties we inherited. Grapes for this blend are collected at full maturity, golden yellow. Blend is composed of 80% Kerner (a cross between Riesling and Trollinger), and Riesling (20%). Kerner juice was barrel fermented in acacia wood (300L and 500 L, 3rd fill) and kept on gross lees for 8 months. Riesling (20%) was tank fermented and also kept on gross lees for the same amount of time before blending.
