2014 Crnko "Jarenincan" Slovenia 1L

From the importer: "These humble liter bottles represent half of Crnko’s total production and until the 2009 vintage had only been sold locally in the nearby village of Jarenina from where the wine takes its name. All fruit is estate grown and comes from the family’s 6 hectares of mixed white varietals planted to the regions unique marl soils and sustainably farmed. High toned Laski Riesling and Ravenec, aromatic Muscats, and a silty minerality characteristic of the estate define this vintage. Thirst quenching and light on its feet with healthy acidity a...

2012 Kabaj Rebula Slovenia

94 points Wine & Spirits: "The color of a tropical sunrise, this gained its orange hue from 30 days macerating on the skins. And like Jean-Michel Morel’s best wines, it improves over the course of several days. It starts with light floral aromas and densely textured flavors of peach and apricot edged in savory herbs and roasted nuts. More intense aromas appear after exposure to air—orange blossom, beeswax and tangerine—with flavors of barely-ripe nectarine, kiwi and citrus, the fruit flavors taking over as the savory notes recede. Still going strong on the third day, the fruit gai ...Read More »

2010 Kabaj "Luisa" Slovenia

93 points Wine & Spirits: "Jean-Michel Morel blends this wine from Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay and Ribolla Gialla grown in sandstone and slate. He ferments it in large oak vats then ages it in French barriques for a year. The result is an ephemeral white that touches every taste receptor with its delicate fragrance, a glance of honey and beeswax, a floral buzz that cleans up in the end. When I tasted this with Tara Q. Thomas after it had been open for several hours, the texture reminded her of a dandelion, the plushness of the yellow flower. Let it open in a decanter before serving wi ...Read More »

2011 Kabaj Rebula Slovenia

Wine Enthusiast: "Rebula is known in Slovenia as “The Queen Of Brda.” This orange wine has aromas of toasted hazelnuts, black Chinese tea and mulled citrus rind. It’s fermented with its skins and barrel aged for two years. A pleasant nutty oxidative character characterizes the finish. It would make any wine geek proud to pair it with a juicy steak." (7/2014) K&L Notes: From the Importer: "The border between Northeast Italy, and Western Slovenia, runs from the Alps, to the Adriatic Sea, dividing a terroir important to both. Known as 'Collio' in Italy, and ‘Brda’ in Slovenia, their shar... Read More »

2012 Batic Pinela Vipava Valley Slovenia

Pinela is an ancient, indigenous grape and without question quite noble. Without the unique climate of the Vipava Valley, it would not survive. Not surprisingly, Ivan Batic devoted his soul to this grape variety. Vines are planted only in the best terroirs and according to the old Vipava Valley tradition, macerated at an unregulated temperature for five days with its own yeast. It is then matured for twenty-four months in Slovenian oak barrels. Bottled in the time of the old moon, this is full bodied, textured, mineral driven, and shows a sophisticated s... Read More »

2010 Edi Simcic "Tokata" (Tocai) Slovenia

Edi Simcic is the next door neighbor to Slovenia's most renowned producer, Movia. Though they are friends, their styles are very different. Movia is famous for his amphora-raised wines with oxidative and very Old World flavors, while Simcic prefers to preserve the purity of fruit so he uses modern techniques and vessels. From 100% Furlanski Tokaj grapes, this dense and bright white wine is serious and even age-worthy. Notes of pear, almond, yellow stone fruit inform a creamy texture. The wine was barrel fermented in a combination of new and seasoned Fren... Read More »

2009 Batic Pinela Vipava Valley Slovenia

94 points Wine & Spirits: "Ivan Batic considers Pinela the top variety on his estate, relying on the windy conditions of his higher elevation vines to keep the fruit healthy and disease free (he has installed a 'physics-based cropping system' to blast hot air at the lower vines, so he doesn’t need to spray with pesticides or herbicides). He ferments this without temperature control or added yeast in open, upright Slovenian oak vats, then ages it in barrel for two years, producing something that tastes like a nourishing food. What seems brash and astringent at first reveals itself ...Read More »
