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

SKU #1264825

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). The Kras region in which they're located is about 5 miles from the Adriatic and is the first recognized cross-border wine region. According to the distributor: "A red sparkling wine made from Teran. Historically, Teran from Kras has been prized for its medicinal properties. It is one of Slovenia's only wines of protected origin. The high content of aluminum and iron oxide in the Karst soil, gives the soil the characteristic red color and the wines their unusually high iron content. Made as a "pétillant-naturel" or naturally sparkling wine. In this process, winemakers stop the normal fermentation before all the sugar has been converted to alcohol. The wine is bottled under a crown-cap, trapped with its yeast cells and some residual sugar. As the yeast eats the sugar, gentle bubbles are created."
