The wine is very deep purple. The bouquet is calm and mature. We find very ripe dark red and especially black fruits, dried fruits, it also smells like jam. The wine is dry in the mouth, the body is strong, there are not many tannins. Full, robust, uncompromising refošk, with a clear Mediterranean touch that gives a beautiful, varied set of perceptions.
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: Due to its aromatics, rich body and pleasant acidity, it goes well with cured meat products, steaks, grilled meat dishes and venison.
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.
