The bouquet is youthful, with an abundance of primary fruity perceptions of red currants, wild berries and raspberries. The wine is dry, the acids are moderate, there is not much tannin, the taste is intense.
The wines we call the fresh line of wines: Malvasia, Tris, Refošk, Bis – are carefully produced, but not too demanding wines from younger vineyards. When matured in stainless steel containers, they are left to age on fine lees for up to seven months, which helps to ensure that the wines are not completely classically fresh and playful, as they lose some primary aromas and gain exceptional elegance and a full body. For a fresh line, we use a white background on the label, which expresses their freshness, simplicity and elegance.
Parring with food: Fresh Bis wine goes well with grilled food, grilled fish and steak. Ventilate it in a glass before drinking wine, as it is slightly closed.
Aging potential: Fresh wines are intended for drinking in 3 years, when they have the greatest potential, but the development of taste in the bottle is nicely enhanced up to 5 years.
