Unit price

60% Pinot Noir, 20% Zweigelt, and 10% Riesling from Štajerska, Slovenia; medium bodied and dry, soft and ripe with notes of fruit punch, citrus syrup, toasted sesame, and salty, with a round texture and a clean dry finish. Sustainable

The winemaker, Janko Bogatic, took the pressed skins of the red blend he produces, which includes Zweigelt, Pinot Noir and a bit of Riesling, then added a bit of water back to the pressings to extract any remaining sugar. The water-laced must began to ferment naturally and after nine days was pressed to tank. He then blended 1/2 of the total volume of fermented juice with unfermented juice to continue the fermentation. Fermentation completes in bottle.
