SLAVCEK 2007 Pinot Grigio - Rose
Wine, Slovenia, 75cl, Ref: 7047
Produced with hand-picked grapes from 0.3 hectares of Guyot-trained vines, Slavcek Pinot Grigio 2007 is vinified for eight days by natural fermentation with airborne yeasts. Wine produced using this method undergoes a malolactic fermentation before resting for two years on the lees in the same barrels. The 2007 harvest produced just 800 bottles. The colour of this wine resembles onion skin, the nose is marked by fruity and vegetal notes and the fairly powerful palate is both fresh and mineral.
Sulphur content: 62 mg/litre

- The brand
The brandSituated in Potock, Slovenia, the Slavcek domain is the first vineyard mentioned in documents that date back to the second half of the 18th century. The Vodopivec family cultivate the 6-hectare vineyard, surrounded by a thick forest and meadows rich in medicinal plant, with dedication and passion. The clay soil is perfect for growing grapes and consequently the production of excellent wines. The climate is also particularly favourable to wine growing: a warm sea breeze blows from the Italian region of Friuli, while the significant temperature difference between night and day enhances the flavour of the grapes.
Having developed in the boom years after the Second World War, conventional agriculture is based on notions of yield. Largely applied in the world of wine-growing, this approach began to be challenged in the early 1990s. Leading the revolt were a handful of grape growers and wine producers who denounced the over-use of pesticides, fungicides and yeasts that have been cultured in laboratories. This trend of moving towards natural methods, that the main wine producers are now also trying to develop, has resulted in the creation of many types of certification; among the strictest is Demeter; there are also various groups and associations in France and across the Alps such as Renaissance AOC and Triple A.
