Type: White

Grape Variety: Zelen

Country: Slovenia

This unusual wine is made from the indigenous grape Zelen, which means “green” in Slovenian. The variety takes its name from the emerald tinge which can be noticed especially in the fresh grape must. It is macerated on the skins for two days to create an orange wine with great complexity and a rich and creamy texture. The wine is then fermented and matured in concrete tanks to preserve the natural character of the grape.

The result is a very aromatic wine with hints of green apple, white flowers, citrus and a steely minerality. The palate offers gentle tannins and vibrant fruit flavours with a long and elegant finish with hints of bitter almonds.
