Sauvignon Blanc, Furmint
The vines are grown on varied geological soil composition, consisting of clay and a small amount of sand, with lower layers usually covered by marl. Environmentally friendly vineyard management is used in our vineyards, more then 40% of which are terraced. Because of this, the majority of work is done manually, which results in a higher quality of wines. Grapes are hand-picked, carefully processed in an oxygen-free environment to preserve aroma, and fermented in stainless steel tanks at low temperature.
The family history starts in the 1930s, when Martin Puklavec worked at a local winegrower's coop. Under his management our current cellar was built and he started exporting wine to Europe and the UK, where his clients included Buckingham Palace (the Queen Mother was a fan!). The Puklavec family re-purchased the estate in 2009, bringing a team of young, ambitious winemakers to reinvigorate the brand. Their goal is to make the best possible wines for everybody to enjoy.
Slovenia is wedged between Italy, Austria, Hungary, Croatia and the Adriatic Sea. Our vineyards are located in the northeast of the country, in Podravje, a region famous for its fresh and fruity wines. One of the key characteristics of this wine-growing area is its hills and terraces, which allow our grapes to receive a great deal of sunshine. In addition, the grapes are all picked by hand, which contributes greatly to the quality of our wines.
This wine is ideal for drinking now but can be kept for up to 2 years
