Brežanka 0,75l

Description

It is a white wine that represents the history of the company and its territory. Literally Brežanka means “of the Breg”. It comes from a historic, centenary vineyard. There are over 15 white berried varieties: 2/3 autochthonous Trieste varieties: Malvasia Istriana, Vitovska and Glera; 1/3 varieties of the neighboring wine areas: Friulano, Riesling, Sauvignon, Pinot Bianco, Ribolla, Klarnca, Pinela, Poljsakica; also present Malvasia del Chianti, Auxerrois and two unknown varieties still ungrafted and never been mapped to date, not certified in the World Bank of DNA. There have been news of Brežanka since 1700. Two important Slovenian poets, Valentin Vodnik and France Prešeren liked it a lot and tasted it both in Ljubljana and Vienna. The vinification, learned from the great-grandfather, was present in this area until the 1980s. The late harvest takes place all on the same day and is entirely manual. The grapes are delicately de-stemmed and pressed, leaving them to macerate and ferment with their own yeasts. No sulfur is added nor is the temperature controlled. Subsequently, it is aged for 2 years in Slavonian oak barrels with natural toasting. A hundred years ago they knew what to plant. And they also knew how to calculate the maturation times of the different qualities, foreseeing the final result which is spectacular. Intense and full bouquet, of great elegance and persistence with floral and fruity notes. Complex and enveloping flavor, harmonious with sensations of flavor and a persistent spicy aftertaste.
