Wine region: Styria – Slovenia
Variety: 100% rhenish riesling
Maturation: In stainless steel tanks, matured on the fine lees
Boris’s tip: The king of the region. Old school dry with petrol aroma. If you love riesling come to this region – wow.
It displays delicate golden colour. Nose is of medium intensity with notes of peaches, apricots, pineapple and lime, accompanied with hints of wet stones and flint. Very dry on the palate, medium bodied with rather moderate Riesling acidities. Vibrant, fresh, with very good intensity on the palate. Very young indeed, with long finish.
A firm Riesling which will attract true Riesling fans.
2018 was marked by huge downy mildew pressure in June, followed by a period of warm and dry weather in July and August. Rain in early September rushed winegrowers to pick early ripening varieties quickly while late-ripening varieties enjoyed a nice warm Indian summer. Wines of 2018 vintage in our winery are marked by low to moderate alcohol levels, vibrant acidities and clear, defined varietal characteristics. A classic Styrian vintage.
Pairing with food: Excellent as appetiser, apart from that it is excellent with sushi, shrimps, prawns and seafood in general and not too spicy Asian food. Very varied, food friendly.
