PINELA is one of the local Vipava Valley wines. It is produced at the Jamsek Estate as a fresh, delicately fruity still dry wine, with medium intensity on the nose and palate. If you are searching for a new, local product – the PINELA sparkling wine can satisfy even the most demanding customers. This sparkling wine is clean, lemon pale nuanced with medium intensity on the nose. Fruity (pear, peach, a scent of green apple and lemon) and floral (blossom) at the same time. Although the sparkling wine is produced using the classical method, a long 6-month contact with yeast results in autolytic flavours of bread and biscuits on palate. It is light bodied, with a gentle sparkle and generally lower in alcohol, but higher in acidity – highly recommended as a spring-time sparkling wine.
A recognized expert of Slovene wines Brejec D. said: “Pinela is a great opportunity for production of sparkling wine. It has neutrality of the chardonnay wine, because the aroma does not stretch, but it is fine and coherent, the acidity of Rennes, which thoroughly rinses the mouth, forms a persistent foam, which significantly improves the appearance, only the dosage of the sugar level must be precisely done, because the sweetness can quickly over the acid and whole wine. If it does, then wine will not be left much longer. “
Pairing with food: seafood, fish dishes, sushi.
