Vipava Valley, Slovenia
100% Cabernet Franc
Mediterranean and Alpine
30 days skin contact, 24 Months in Slovenian Oak Barrel
Notes & Pairings
After macerating for thirty days in an open topped oak vat without any additives, the Cabernet Franc was barreled down into Slovenian oak barrels where the wine slowly finished malolactic fermentation. Apart from topping barrels, nothing else was done until bottling. Phenomenal acid, a fine-grained texture, and a balance of fruity and savory flavors make this is varietally spot on Cabernet Franc with an elegant Slovenian twist. Traditionally paired with white polenta and foal, gamey meats, sweet herbs and hearty earthy flavors.
