Wine description:

  • Wine region: Slovenian Istria

  • Soil type: Eocene flysch with marl and sandstone
  • Variety: Cabernet sauvignon
  • Harvest: Exclusively manual harvest in the first half of October.
  • Conditions at harvest time: The weather was dry at harvest time with temperatures around 20 ° C. The vintage was quite dry, which resulted in a concentration in the grape berries and a nice phenolic ripeness of the grape seeds and strawberry skin.

  • Color: Deep intense ruby ​​color with garnet hue.
  • Aroma: In the aroma of this wine we find ripe cherries, plum jam, green pepper, dark chocolate, undergrowth, and in the end we can enjoy the sophisticated notes of wood.
