Boris’s tip: Full body orange malvazija with citrus aromas. Great with fish and meditarian food.
This natural, dry white wine named after the (previous) owner of the vineyard in Solkan has a wonderful gold-amber colour which is a sign of the prolonged maceration. This wine’s bouquet is fruity with a rich taste, with pleasant citrus and dried fruit notes. Despite its maturity the wine is surprisingly fresh and pleasant and goes well with a number of Mediterranean dishes, fish and other. Without a doubt it can also be a meditative wine that doesn’t need to be accompanied by anything.
UOU natural orange and red wines are produced from grapes of abandoned vineyards. A consortium of abandoned vineyards cleaned, planted and strengthened them to bring new youth to life in their old age.
