PINOT GRIS

It came to Slovenia from Burgundy, but it can be found in our neighbouring country – Italy. It is a variety which has spread a lot in the last couple of years. It is known for its special flower, melons and grapefruits. Its characteristics are rich extract, alcohol and nice freshness. It can be said that according to its structure it is more similar to red than to white wine.

VINEYARDS:   Pročno, Španc,
AGE OF VINEYARDS: from 8 to 30 years

VINIFICATION

At full ripeness organically produced grapes are harvested by hand, then sent through a vertical destalker. Maceration 48 hours without yeast added and without temperature control. After pressing wine is held in inox vessels where it is kept for a few hours in order to calm down. Then it is transported into used 2500 l oak barrels where spontaneous fermentation (with own yeasts) starts.

RIPENING

Wine ripens in oak barrels for approximately 10 to 12 months. Then it is decanted and filled in bottles without filtration. Bottling is carried out without additional sulphur.
