Product category: Primorska


The black label represents mature wines, aged in oak barrels. They are made of grapes with an extended period of ripening in the vineyards. The cold maceration is followed by fermentation and lying on the yeast sediment (sur lies). They mature two to three years in carefully selected oak barrels. After bottling, they are suitable for drinking, but we can also age them five to ten more years. The wine still bears fruity sensations (this time that of ripe fruit), that pleasantly interact with other aromas of maturing.
