Refošk – Črno 2018
Was picked in 2018 in the start of October in the sunny southwestern position, near the village of Manžan. It was an exceptional harvest for our refošk, so we left it on the plant until was maturing. Among the hand-picked grape, they were already dried, full of extracts. With spontaneous fermentation and uncontrolled temperature, it was macerated for almost a month. After a slight distress, it was piled in an inox container, where he was on small branches until summer 2020, with no added sulfur.
Colour: Intensive ruby, black colour with purple shades.
Aroma: Reminiscent of blackberry, blueberry, and ripe sour cherry and beautifully intertwined with the gentle, ripe aroma of wood.
Taste: The wine is full and soft, which makes it pleasantly playful with fruity but non-aggressive acids. A beautiful and elegant wine with a medium long finish in which sour cherries and pleasant tannins are beautifully expressed.
Food and wine pairing recommendation: Refosco is a wine which is very welcome on tables with cold cured meat products, red meat, slaughter meat and grilled dishes, and due to its pleasant acids, also goes nicely with a pizza.
Serving temperature: 15–18 °C
