Personality: Great and graceful! The unique terroir together with masterfully unrushed winemaking and a well-incorporated skin-contact result in a super elegant and layered white, full of lush meadow notes, salinity, silky tannins, velvety texture and citrus-like acidity. A wine you’ll be happy to go back to the whole evening, discovering new facets with each sip and glass. Great ageing potential.

Vineyard: Slatnik, San Floriano del Collio Oslavia. Northeast exposure, marl-clay soil, elevation 250m. Estate-owned, farmed organically by the Paraschos family

Making of: Grapes are hand-harvested separately and gradually when they reach the right point of ripeness (up to 3 weeks of difference between the first and the last pick). Destemmed and skin-macerated in big, open-topped vats. When the last-picked grapes are added to the vat, the coferment is left for some days to finish the alcoholic fermentation. No yeast addition, no temperature control. Gently pressed and racked by gravity to the aging cellar, where it spends a minimum of 2 years on its fine lees in big neutral oak vats. Bottled by gravity, no fining, no filter, no SO2 added.

Winemaker's Note: A traditional fieldblend of white varieties growing on Slatnik hill, one of the most renowned vineyards of Collio. The name comes from its special type of soil, a clayey-marl called Ponka.
