Tasting notes: The rare examples of Chardonnay variety are so rich and complex on the nose and palate as this one. It offers a taste of fully ripen tropical fruits as banana and melon as well pear, peach… Still very mineral due to the terroir it ends with elegant, slightly creamy aftertaste as characteristic for wines matured by the classical French batonnage method.

Special remarks: Suitable for drinking, with an excellent ageing potential, at least fifteen years. Available in magnums.

Awards: The vintage of 2011 was named as “The first Slovenian Montrachet” by the respective Slovenian wine commentator and wine magazine owner. It won silver on the AWC Vienna and silver in Finger lakes USA 2017.

The vintage 2012 has just been released.
