The Story

Pinot noir is one of the oldest wine varieties on the planet and one of the most elegant red wines in the world. It is famous for its gentle colour, which rapidly transforms to garnet red hues, and for a bouquet reminiscent of ripe strawberries. It first arrived to Slovenia back in 1822. Nevertheless, when we started cultivating it at the beginning of the 1980s, the Vino Kupljen Winery was one of the pioneers of pinot noir.

As evident from the brand name, this is one of the varieties we are especially passionate about. We produce Passion but in top vintages, from selected grapes grown on the very best locations. The wine is placed on the market after 18 months maturation in French oak barrels and after 6 months resting in bottles. It has an excellent ageing potential and may be stored for up to two decades.

Aroma
A more intense bouquet; very ripe but by no means overripe, clearly revealing a cool-climate vineyard. It is reminiscent of wild strawberries, dark cherries, plums, forest fruit, and has a fine note of smoke and vanilla.

Palate
Dry in the mouth with a scent of the red fruit we had picked up on the nose. Full-bodied, with a hint of the warm yet profusely elegant and mature cool-climate pinot noir of a complex character.

Passion with food
It pairs perfectly with meat dishes, such as veal in mushroom sauce, beefsteak or roast pork, as well as with risotto, and porcino or button mushroom pasta.
