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 »

2013 Kabaj Rebula Slovenia

93 points Wine & Spirits: "Jean-Michel Morel keeps his ribolla on the skins for 30 days, resulting in a dense and textured white, the flavors of juicy pineapple and tangerine streaming around and through the tannins. Scents of dried flowers and saffron add delicacy, while notes of chai tea, anise and truffle add savor and spice. The tannins give the wine a tensile character that suggests it will deliver even more with time in the cellar." (10/2016)

2015 Stoka Teran Slovenia

Refosco is an ancient family of dark-skinned grape varieties. Their origins – which pre-date modern day political borders. Some believe Refosco wine has been made for two millennia and was enjoyed in Roman times. Refosco has traditionally been used to make simple table wines, but a recent improvement in quality has shown off the variety's ability to produce finer, more age-worthy wines. Refosco wines have particularly high acidity and are mostly dark and densely colored with violet and grassy aromas. Flavors of dark peppery spices and plums abound on th... 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 »

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 people have been growing wine in the region since before Roman times. From importer Blue Danube: "Manually harvested. Fermented in submersible inox roto tank at the controlled temperature. Maceration duration: 3-4 days. Aging in stainless steel. Ruby red with violet hints. Quite complex and refreshing nose. The fragr... Read More »

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.

2015 Stoka "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).

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 »

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 »

2011 Kabaj "Luisa" Slovenia

94 points Wine & Spirits: "Like many Kabaj whites, this 2011 is reticent at first, the flavors masked by a meaty texture and lactic notes that recall washed-rind cheese. The wine raised some controversy among our panelists, yet it emerged over several days of re-tasting as one of this issue’s most compelling white wines. Winemaker Jean-Michel Morel changes the composition of Luisa depending on the vintage, this one a blend of co-fermented friulano, pinot bianco and sauvignon blanc, and ribolla that macerated on the skins for a full month. Exposure to air transforms it into a gorge ...Read More »
