The Korenika & Moškon, Sulne is a macerated mixture of Malvazija Istarska, Pinot Gris and Chardonnay. Dark amber color, it actually looks like an amber colored gemstone.
👃 Quince, dried dates and figs, nutmeg, broth and lots of cognac notes. In my experience, this type of aroma is only found in white wines that have been macerated for a long time and that have been aged in oak.
👅 Quince, apricots, peach jam, black tea, orange peel. The tannins are strong but nicely rounded. A wine that has matured in wood for this long might be expected to be heavy and overripe, but this is not the case. This wine retains a lot of freshness and energy.
The grapes come from the two cru vineyards Paderno and Pod Kortinca, which are cultivated according to biodynamic principles. After hand-picking, the fruits were macerated in stainless steel tanks for 45 days. Then the wine was aged in large oak barrels for 6 years (!) (12 months on the lees). The wine was bottled without filtration or stabilization.
