Rosé

2017

(tasting notes) Aromas of red berries with a hint of raspberry. The taste is luscious and refreshing, with pronounced fruitiness and lively acids.


A diverse geological soil composition, consisting mainly limestone and dolomite. The vineyards spread out over the finest wine-growing sites on the hill slopes between river Sava in Krka in south east Slovenia.
Enviromental friendly. Minimum as needed, only with substances approved for sustainable farming.
Mostly rainy and warm summer contributet towards lower yields, therefore higher quality and higher sugar content. Manual harvest took place in 21 day period. After pressing the grape skin was seperated from grape juice in less than 3 hours.
Black velvet is the world oldest and also Slovenian autochthonous vine. Slow fermentation took place for 10 days and was endorsed by autochthonous yeast under controled lower temperature for richer development of flavoures and aromas.
Matured in stainless steel. Bottled right before release.
Rose is extremely grateful in combination with all food. It is very important that the wine is served properly cooled, preferably between 8 and 10 ° C.
