Notes:

A delicious and well made Pinot Gris from a small producer. Skin contact of 48 hours gives the wine a beautiful bronze color with a slight pinkish hue. Dry farmed from a single vineyard and produced with organic and biodynamic methods. Notes of white cherries, melon, and quince are present. With a lush mouthfeel this wine is perfect with fish, chicken and light fare but has the body for steak tacos, chipotle sauces, and spicier Indian food. A delicious and versatile wine.

 

Matija (Marid) Zerjav is a third-generation winemaker and has been managing his family's property since 2011. Working in very low intervention, all grapes are farmed organically, only native yeasts are used for fermentation, and stainless steel, amphora and Slovenian oak casks are used depending on the cuvee. No fining, light filtration and minimal SO2 is used at bottling.
