Sugar level: sweet, selection
Alcohol level: 12% 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. Because of increased sugar content, 80 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 November, when the berries are orange-yellow, enriched with gray mold (Botrytis cinerea).
Wine characteristics: Our Sauvignon, produced from carefully chosen grape berries, smells and tastes of honey and light Botrytis, 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, the fullness of the wine is intensified.
