2013 Kabaj "Ravan" Slovenia

SKU #1298631 92 points Wine & Spirits

 This friulano is shy at first, offering simple flavors of green pear in a slightly chewy texture. The wine gains complexity over several days, becoming creamier, with succulent peach and honeydew melon flavors in a honeyed richness. Vibrant acidity runs through the wine's core, keeping the flavors fresh and as cool as a cucumber on the way to a bone-dry finish.

K&L Notes

Kabaj (Ka-bye) have farmed their vineyards for many generations. When Katja Kabaj met French oenologist Jean-Michel Morel after his stint at an Italian winery, they fell in love and eventually married. Jean-Michel brought some of those Italian and French sensibilities to the winery along with his fondness for working with amphorae and large oak casks. "Ravan" is the house name for the local variety formerly known as Tocai Friulano, Sauvignon Vert, Sauvignonasse and most recently Jakot (Tokaj spelled backwards). The wine spends two weeks on its skins before it finishes its aging for a year in large oak vats and used barriques.
