Macerated on the skins for just 12 hours before spontaneous fermentation without the addition of selected yeasts, in stainless steel tank. Unfiltered, unfined and minimal sulphur used. Concentrated and fresh this is super approachable and a great way int skin contact wines.

Notes on the Producer

NANDO farm is located in Plesivo, Brda in the Primorska region, bordering with the Friuli-Collio region of Italy. Of the 5.5 hectares, 60% are located in Italian Collio and 40% in Brda. The favourable Mediterranean micro-climate is mixed with warm sea air arriving from the Adriatic Sea in the south, and cooler temperatures from the Julian Alps located north of the farm. This unique climate is very well suited for white wines. The vineyards are terraced at an altitude of 100m to 200m, and planted with local (indigenous) Rebula, Tokaj, and Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The vines range from 9 to 40 years, with yields of 4000 to 6000 kg. per hectare. The vineyards are planted in a poor soil of marl or “ponka” as it is known in the local Slovenian dialect.

 To protect against disease, copper and sulphur treatments are used sparingly. Chemical agents are not used. The soil is planted with grass, and the harvest is manual with grapes harvested in full maturity from September to October.
