Wine region: Bela krajina
Variety: 100% sauvignon blanc
Maturation: 6 months in barrique barrels and 3 months in inox
100% Sauvignon Blanc selection from Lozice vineyard located on Plešivica hill. It is a wine expressing terroir and varietal characteristics. Warm location associated to the marly soil gives amplitude and freshness while spontaneous fermentation brings an extra layer of complexity.
Wine is driven by citrusy, grapefruit and dried herbs characters with underlying tones of passionfruit and ripe mango. The mouthfeel is round, full, creamy and the mid-palate is lifted by a refreshing acidity followed by a lingering finish. Pure expression of Sauvignon blanc from Lozice terroir. This wine is full bodied, complex and enjoyable. Drink from now to 2025.
Single vineyard wine. Grapes were destemmed, crushed and cold soaked for 24 h at 10 °C before pressing and settling. Spontaneous fermentations took place in combination of new and used barrique barrels as well as 15% in stainless steel tank. Wine was aged on gross lees for 6 months in barrels and thereafter for another 3 months in stainless steel tank before being racked, fined, roughly filtered and bottled.
