Natural Spring Uou- Limited edition – Special rare wine
In Grjanc, the northern part of the village of Gornje Cerovo, Grjanc 9 varieties and Rebula 2018 rest for 6 months in a spring under a vineyard. There is a lot of sediment in the water, especially brick or marl, which eventually clings to the bottle to create this unique texture. About 60 bottles are available annually.
This pleasant dry wine is also named after the Solkan vineyard owner and shows its character with its gold-amber colour. It has a quite distinctive and penetrating bouquet, some tannins in the taste suggest aging of this wine. The Rebula Ivanka can be served alongside numerous light meat dishes and ripened cheeses.
UOU natural orange and red wines are produced from grapes of abandoned vineyards. A consortium of abandoned vineyards cleaned, planted and strengthened them to bring new youth to life in their old age.
