Colour is paler gold. On the nose, it is quite pronounced with clear notes of peaches and apricots with touch of honey. Medium sweet on the palate, lighter bodied with high acidities and slightly oily texture. The Riesling character is well expressed on the palate while a sweetness-acidity interplay is nicely derived and seductive. With a nice, long varietal aftertaste.
Fruit salads, ice cream, apple pie. How about Foie gras?
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.
In very good condition already but will improve. Best from 2022-2027.
WINE IS CULTURE AND ALWAYS HAS VALUE AS A LINK TO SOCIETY.
