Beli Zajc

Bottle size: 0,75 L

Vintage: 2019

Like a poem it combines welschriesling, yellow muscat and royal white. Never trapped in an oak barrel, it prides itself with lightness of fruits put upon an elder blossom. It is created for those who seek fruit flavours in fresh white wines.

Distinctive colour and taste

Beli Zajc is white couvee – a sort of two world and one indigenous variety each of which contributes its characteristics. Welschriesling gives its strong body, yellow muscat gives its fragrant bouquet and royal white gives its youthful acidity. A lemon-like shade sparkles in the glass. The bouquet is medium stressed and youthful. The wine is dry, light and simple.

Ideal for refreshment
It was created for those who seek fruit flavours in fresh white wines. It is perfect with grilled chicken. For refreshment, you can mix it with mineral water (1 : 1) in the shadow on a sunny summer afternoon. It is the best a year after grape harvesting.

Harvest notes

Harvesting took place by varieties in the morning. Each variety waited for the moment of appropriate ripeness of the grapes. The grapes are nurtured in a nature-friendly way, are strictly selected and are picked exclusively by hand.


The grapes were immediately pressed, and then each variety was fermented separately with indigenous yeasts. After the fermentation was completed, we performed typification and stored the wine in a chilled steel tank.


After typification, the wine matures in refrigerated stainless steel tanks and waits to be bottled just before sale.
