CHF 45.00CHF 37.90
This wine comes from a vineyard which was rated a “second growth” in the Marie Therese classification of Austrian vineyards in 1787. The Brda region of Slovenia used to belong to Austria until the First World War, then to Italy where it was a part of the Collio wine region until the Second World War. It is located just over the border from Gorizia in North East Italy.
From a small, east-facing, 45 year old vineyard on local “Ponka” soils. This is rich and powerful yet also has delicious freshness and minerality. Flavours of honeysuckle and exotic peach and grapefruit are mingled with notes of butter, oatmeal and brioche from its 12 month stay in ex-Domaine Leflaive oak barrels. Extremely well-made, this combines mountain air purity with Burgundian complexity and finesse! Like Puligny Montrachet in style. Only 250 cases were produced.
