Wine region: Karst
Variety: 40% ribolla 40% welschriesling
20% istrian malvasia
Maturation: 36 months – oak barrels
Maceration: 7 days Welschriesling and Malvasia in open vats/manual pigeage and bâtonnage/decanting/12 months tino (conical wooden barrel) with addition of 1/3 of Ribolla grapes
Boris’s tip: Great orange cuve for orange wine lovers. Great with sea food in strong sauce.
In the manner of traditional blended wines, this white house blend looks both to the Vipava Valley and to the Karst. Consists of two parts Ribolla, two parts Welschriesling (very much at home in the Vipava Valley) and one part Istrian Malvasia.
