Wine region: Prekmurje
Variety: 100% chardonnay
Maturation: 18 months in a combination of new American and French barriques and a part in stainless vats
Grapes of Chardonnay were handpicked, destemmed and crushed. After a short maceration at controlled temperatures, the most fermented and matured for eighteen months in a combination of new American and French barriques and a part in stainless vats, all of this with constant stirring of fine lees. Woodstock charms with its golden yellow colour and dense texture. It’s like the glass is wearing a jacket with fringes.
Its aroma is intense and sophisticated. It says wood right away, but then aromas of dried herbs like sage open up. They are followed by butter, almonds and finally ripe peach, candied lemon peel, dried orange and slices of tropical fruit, with a slight resinous and smoky finish.
The taste is dry, we detect softness, but Jenis just pulls her edgy “Yeeeeah”, letting us know the wine is a little rough and astringent around the edges. The alcohol is well integrated, with bright acidity and minerality, leaving a slightly spicy finish. An elegant, full-bodied wine with a persistent aftertaste with oak imparted flavours.
