01: Wine characteristics and description

The classic red blend of these hills, combining Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. There is expressive dark berry fruit here, with a touch of vanilla, cedar and some cassis too. To taste it offers generous blackberry fruit, with notes of black cherry and plum. The tannins are ripe but grainy with enough freshness for balance. It's rather classy in an understated way, bringing together the juicy supple fruit of Merlot with the dark berries and structure of Cabernet. Good keeping potential too.

Leto se je začelo s hladno zimo, nizke temperature so se ohranile vse do pomladi. Pozno pomlad so zaznamovale pogoste padavine in sledile so skoraj popolne vremenske razmere. Po mrzlih prvih treh mesecih smo v aprilu in maju pričakali zelo prijetno in toplo vreme, v katerem so naše trte razvile močno krošnjo. Odlične razmere so se nadaljevale tudi v juniju, ko smo sicer dobili nekaj več dežja od želenega, a na srečo ni bilo težav. Grozdje tako belih kot rdečih sort je doseglo optimalno zrelost in pričakovanja za letnik 2018 so visoka. Trgatev se je začela nekoliko prej in dala izjemne količine, ne da bi pri tem ogrozila kakovost. Res odličen letnik. The 2018 vintage began with a cold winter, maintaining low temperatures into the spring. One of its distinctive features was a late spring characterized by frequent rain showers, followed by almost perfect weather conditions. After the cold first three months, we experienced extremely pleasant and warm weather in April and May, during which our vines developed a strong canopy. The excellent weather conditions continued into June, where we encountered a bit more rain than desired, but fortunately, it didn't pose any problems. As a result, the grapes of both white and red varieties achieved optimal ripeness, and the expectations for the 2018 vintage are ambitious. Harvesting commenced a little earlier, yielding extraordinary quantities without compromising quality. Truly, a great vintage.

We experienced a relatively mild winter, providing a favorable start to the new growing season. However, during the flowering of the vines in the last weeks of May, we faced bad weather that lowered the quantities of the 2019 vintage. The hot and very dry summer again contributed to a slightly smaller harvest, but we were pleased with the quality of the grapes. Elevated temperatures in July and August enabled normal berry development, ensuring excellent phenolic maturity. Harvesting occurred through multiple rounds as we carefully sought optimal characteristics for each grape variety.
