Yellow muscat
Rumeni Muškat

2017

(tasting notes) Distinctive muscat aroma with recognizable hint of elderflower. The taste is luscious and refreshing, with pronounced sweet 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 over river Sava 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 grape quality and higher sugar content. Manual harvest took place in 7 day period.
After pressing starting with autochthonous yeast fermentation and maceration for 72 hours. After that time the fermentation continued in fermentors with controled lower temperature.
Matured in stainless steel. Bottled right before release.
Best combination with deserts with vanilla, gorgonzola cheese, melon and other fruits. It is very important that the wine is served properly cooled, preferably between 8 and 10 ° C.
