Joannes Riesling, 201
SUSTAINABLE FARMING, NATIVE YEASTS Manual harvest of totally clean, healthy grapes, de-stemmed, fermented in a steel tank with no added yeasts, and then matured for one month. Aged for 8 months on lees in old 2,000 liter oak barrels and bottled after one coarse filtering. Aromas of roses, linden blossoms, apricot and peach are complemented by a touch of petroleum. Fresh and lively palate is super elegant, with mature acidity and tremendous chalky minerality. Serve at 46 F with pork, veal, poultry, funky cheeses, charcuterie, grains and sushi/sashimi.
Kobal Blaufrankisch, 2013
Blaufränkisch is a special premium dark, ruby-colored wine with an aroma which resembles overripened blackberries, chocolate, black mulberries and dried plums. The harmony of fruity aromas is nicely rounded up with wood characteristics both in scent and in flavor, with a moderately long velvet finish. We recommend allowing the wine to decant for up to 45 minutes before consumption.
Kobal Pinot Grigio, 2015
SUSTAINABLE FARMING Kobal PINK Pinot Gris is made from perfectly ripe grapes shaped by both old school and modern technological approaches in the cellar. Extended skin maceration and lees ageing are responsible for the wine’s depth, structure and salmon-pink color. The bouquet is reminiscent of ripe pear, red apple, flowers, melon and tropical fruit. Pleasant acidity and minerality on the palate are followed by the discreet creamy aftertaste that is typical of wines matured on lees. This is a wine for drinking within 2 years of bottling. Serve it chilled with grilled vegetables, charcuterie, young cheeses, pasta with white wine sauce, chicken, pork or veal.
Kobal Sauvignon Blanc, 2015
SUSTAINABLE FARMING Kobal Sauvignon Blanc is made from perfectly ripe grapes shaped by both old school and modern technological approaches in the cellar. 36-hour skin maceration and lees ageing are responsible for the wine’s depth and structure. After fermentation the wine went through partial biological de-acidification in stainless steel tanks. It was aged on lees until bottling when it was lightly filtered and only a tiny amount of sulfite added. The bouquet is reminiscent of passion fruit, gooseberry, blackcurrant and grapefruit. Pleasant acidity and minerality on the palate are followed by the discreet creamy aftertaste that is typical of wines matured on lee

Mansus Pinot Grigio, 12
CERTIFIED ORGANIC, NATURAL WINE PINK PINOT GRIGIO! A completely different take on Pinot Grigio compared to our Pullus. The Makovec winery has always produced serious and more terroir driven wines, even for Vipava Valley standards. Unlike most Pinot Grigio's at this price point, this wine does not even have a touch of fruit. Earthy, chalky, structured, vegetal, but it drinks surprisingly well! Only 12.5% alcohol for this "orange" Pinot Grigio but the wine does have a broad and substantial presence on the palate due to the old vines that the grapes come from. No sulfites added, always native yeasts, and certified organic.
Pullus Pinot Grigio, 2015
Macerated for 72 hours with skins gives this wine a light, friendly, and clear pinky, salmon color. Made from perfect ripe grapes that were picked THREE TIMES OVER THE SPAN OF SEPTEMBER, this Pinot Grigio was given cold maceration, ML, partial lees aging, and 10% neutral oak maturation. Starting with a delightful rosy hue typical of the grape when grown in superior climates, this dry wine delivers everything wine lovers expect from Pinot Grigio - and much, much more! The nose offers ripe pear, green melon and floral notes, while the discreet oak and the creamy quality given by lees aging round out the experience on the palate with a sensational and lushess spice note you don't expect from a Pinot Grigio. A wine with great structure, finesse, and elegance, it is perfect for pasta, white meat and young cheeses.
Pullus Pinot Noir, 2014
The Slovenian climate is ideal for Pinot Noir, and this is an easy-going, bright,fruity and clean pinot that come in at at very low price! Raspberries and strawberries on the nose, medium body and juicy, mouthwatering acidity.
Pullus Sauvignon Blanc, 2013
SUSTAINABLE FARMING Sauvignon Blanc in the Pullus
line is made from grapes harvested FOUR TIMES OVER THE
COURSE OF ONE MONTH to ensure optimal ripeness and
complexity. Protective technology ensures and allows very lows
levels of added sulphur, freshness, and the preservation of
varietal characteristics found in much higher price points of
sauvignon blanc. Partial lees aging adds a roundness unexpected
in a wine made for drinking now. A dry, delightfully rounded
wine with grapefruit, passion fruit, mango, guava and pineapple
on the nose and hints of paprika, minerality, tropical fruits, and
delightful acidity on the palate make this a springtime treat with
asparagus dishes and seafood.
Sanctum Chardonnay, 2012
This barrel-fermented chardonnay from Stajerska Slovenia has a full body and nice acidity. Not oaky and pleasantly crisp and aromatic.
