Description

VITICULTURE
Stajerska is a hilly, predominantly white wine area in north-eastern Slovenia, bordering Austria and Hungary. Befitting its location it has a rich and varied history, with styles and varieties both of itself and of its neighbours. It is here that Matija Žerjav – known as Matic to his friends – farms nine hectares of old, organic family vineyards and makes wine in a cellar dating back to 1852. “We work only with what nature gives us,” says Matic, “so no chemicals in our wines.” These are pure, vibrant, honest expressions of time and place from one of Slovenia’s most exciting young talents.
Matic chooses to farm his 9 hectares of land using all organic and biodynamic methods, prefering these methods because he firmly believes this is how wine should be made (he is not interested in the fact that is it fashipbale to do so!). He wants his children to be able to play in the vineyard and someday, should they choose, he would be happy to see them follow in his footsteps and farm the same land, hills, and valleys.
Petillant Naturel, or “Pet Nat”, as it affectionately known, is a natural sparkling wine whose style has recently become popular again. The wine is fermented in the bottle with the use of natural yeasts. This style of winemaking, although considered more “trendy” is actually one of the most ancient wine making methods known.
WINEMAKING
The wine is fermented in the bottle with the use of natural yeasts. This style of winemaking is one of the most ancient wine making methods known.
All of the delicious notes from Šipon are present. The wine has undergone fermentation in the bottle, leaving a little of the remaining yeasts and sugars. Citrus and fruit come first followed by notes of bread and biscuit.
Each bottle is individually dosed and fermented. Cloudy, murky, and totally delicious this is a real treat! Matic describes this wine as “one funky piece of winemaking!”
OAK TREATMENT
None.
TASTING NOTE
Chill this wine and get ready for bubbles! This will pair with many different flavors- let your palate and mind run loose.
