Wine type: Sauvignon 100%
Sugar level: medium sweet
Alcohol level: 14,5% vol
Location: Belski Vrh, vineyard location Zeletina. Southern location, sunlit throughout the day, at an altitude of 360m above sea level, nicely winded and sunny. Because of the 65% average incline, the grapevines receive more intense sun rays, which allows the grapes a greater maturity. The parent material of the soil is sandstone.
Average grapevine age: 38 years Vinification: 24-hour cold maceration, cold-pressed, brought to fermentation with its own yeast. Because of increased sugar content, 30 g/L, and high alcohol content the wine will continue to gain quality and taste in the bottle.
Preparation: Carefully supervised the selection of grapes on the grapevines and of the course of ripening. Sugar and acid parameters in the grape berry are measured weekly so that the grapes are what makes the wine. Hand-picking or overripe berries takes place at the beginning of October when the berries are orange-yellow.
Wine characteristics: Our Sauvignon, produced from carefully chosen grape berries, smells of smoke and honey, which is typical for overripe Sauvignons. The parent material of the soil – sandstone, gives it a mineral quality. Because of the overripeness of grapes, the acids are harmonious, but still balance the sugar, obtained from the sun.
