Goriška Brda, Primorska
8 - 10 °C
A wine of straw-like yellow colour with greenish tinges. The blossom is distinctly layered and complex. The exceptionality of the year and respect for the principles of ecological viticulture and wine cellaring are noticeable in floral-fruity notes, with which the sensation of bread crust is intertwined.
In the mouth it is full, rich, fresh and ripe, and shy and flirtatious at the same time. Just as a woman aware of her charms, it plays to its strengths: harmony. A delicate mineral note gives the wine a pleasant saltiness and elevates it to the role of an exceptional aperitif.
