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 »

2013 Edi Simcic "Rubikon" Rebula Slovenia

From the importer: "From Slovenia, just meters over the Italian border, Edi Simcic has been hailed by critics as the finest winemaker in Eastern Europe, and one of the very best in ALL of Europe. His wines, worth every penny, are never inexpensive–until now. In our opinion, no grape is more important, or more profound in this appelation, than Rebula. Bright, fresh and mineral-laden, it also has a delightful sweet cream essence to it, derived from local autochthonous yeasts that ferment 11 months in French oak. With terrific acidity, the wood is almost im... 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 »

2015 Štoka "Penece" Teran Pétillant-Natural Slovenia (Sparkling)

For 200 years, the Štoka family has made wine in the "terra rossa" on the Slovenian/Italian border with native grapes such as Teran (also known as Refošk).

Historically, Teran from Kras has been prized for its medicinal properties. It is one of Slovenia's only wines of protected origin.

2012 Kabaj Sivi Pinot (Pinot Gris) Slovenia

The Goriska Brda Hills for a hilly landscape in western Slovenia, north of Nova Gorica on the Italian border. The region has a mild sub-Mediterranean climate with plentiful sunshine. This is the ideal location for grape growing, according to Katja Kabaj Morel and her French oenologist husband, Jean-Michel Morel. Their Pinot Grigio is crystal clear in color with a fruity aroma reminiscent of green apples and flowers. The fruitiness reappears in the mouth, along with minerality closing in on a long finish. Great with rich pasta dishes as well as most cooke... Read More »

2014 Santomas Refosk Slovenia

Slovenia is wedged between Italy, Austria, Hungary, and Croatia with a tiny, 40km of it touching the Adriatic Sea in the southwest corner. While the country looks like a running chicken, the geography has lent itself well to wine growing and thusly, people have been growing wine in the region since before Roman times.

2009 Movia Pinot Nero Slovenia

The 300-year-old Movia estate is located on the Italian/Slovenian border and has been run by the Kristancic family since 1820. It's led today by the inimitable Aleš Kristancic, who farms the land by the same biodynamic principles his ancestors did--though they didn't call it that. His wines are stunning representations of "natural wine," but moreover they are just stunning. Named one of the 100 Top Wineries of 2009 by Wine & Spirits Magazine, editor Wolfgang Weber wrote: "If I were to shoot a documentary about the natural wine movement, Movia's Aleš Kris...

2013 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. 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 spiciness. Truly unique! The signature methodology of the Batic estat... 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 »
