It displays pale golden colour. Youthful on the nose with a pleasant aroma of lychee, grapefruit, and other citrus fruits. There is a touch of sweetness on the palate, which is nicely balanced with acidities. It has a pleasant, varietally typical aftertaste.
It goes well with spicy foods, especially Asian such as spicy salads or dishes with curry sauces. can be very much enjoyed on its own, even as a slightly different aperitif. Wine that inspires creativity. In a top Dutch restaurant, it is served with slightly smoked red gurnard fish with watermelon and verbena, dash-bouillon, seaweed, shaved citrus-ice and sake.
Vintage 2020 is second in a row, where harvest times were stretched well into October, which was very much a normality 20-30 years ago. Prolonged ripening was allowed enabling grapes to achieve perfect ripeness giving wines with medium to low alcohol levels retaining high acidity levels and varietal characters. This are all attributes which wines from Štajerska Slovenia are famed for. We speak of 2020 as a classic Styrian vintage.
In stainless steel tanks, matured on the fine lees.
Although complex primary notes are essential here, we believe it will mature gracefully for another 3-4 years. Drink 2022-2024.
WINE IS CULTURE AND ALWAYS HAS VALUE AS A LINK TO SOCIETY.
