Leptir 2019


For lovers of those fresh, more tart styles of orange wine, we have this interesting and complex skin contact wine from Slovenia! Spicy aromas of dry wildflowers, apricots, pears and white tea with honey. A little juicy up front with lots of tartness on the finish. Really, really good with pasta.

Type: Skin Contact
Vintage: 2019
Size: 750ml
Grape: 50% Pinot Blanc, 40% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Gris
Region: Lipoglav, Stajerska, Slovenia
Vinification: Embracing the minimal intervention approach in the cellar, hand-harvested grapes were processed separately. Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris were destemmed into small open top fermenters, spontaneously fermented on the skins for 14-21 days. Both wines were matured in 300-500 liter used Slovenian oak barrels. Chardonnay was whole bunch pressed and spontaneously fermented in Slovenian and French oak barrels. After 10 months of barrel aging the blend was created in stainless steel tanks and bottled unfiltered.
