Properly interesting completely natural wine this, coming out of Slovenia. Predominantly 2017 vintage, but with wine from12 different harvests. Some grapes with a little botritis (noble rot), some saw skin contact for around 3 days. Naturaly fermentated and unfiltered with 2 years aged in old oak barrels on lees, with no added sulfur.

On the nose we're pretty wild but pretty, discreet and savoury stone fruit and herbs, there's a gentle note of buttery yeast on the palate. It's completely full of vivacity and a tense energy and just enough grip on the palate. Really delicious. 

 

Bottled in clay (excellent at staying cold!) with a wax top.
