This wine comes from a vineyard which was rated a “first 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, northeast-facing, 25 year old vineyard on Ponka soils situated just below the church in the picturesque village of Bigliana. This is elegant, fresh and mineral with gentle flavours of honey, peach, butter and vanilla. Beautifully-balanced, it has serious complexity and finesse and a finish which grows and grows. Like a “Meursault” in style.
Winemaker’s tip:- serve with chicken in a “fermier” sauce with mushrooms.
