Grape variety: Sauvignon blanc
Appellation: Haloze Hills
Region: Štajerska, Slovenia
Soil: Sand and clay with marl in the lower layers.
Farming practices: No irrigation. Environmentally friendly cultivation, following the integrated farming guidelines of Slovenia.
Vinification: Some of the wine is barrel fermented with no added yeast to preserve local terroir, and some is cold-fermented for varietal character and freshness. 36-hour skin maceration and lees ageing are responsible for the wine’s depth and structure.
Aging: On lees in stainless steel tanks until bottling when it was lightly filtered and only a tiny amount of sulfite added.
