100% Ribolla Gialla
Just as Prohibition set the burgeoning wine industry back a century or so when it befell California, so did Communism…ahem, block… what was a long-standing winemaking culture in those lands behind the Iron Curtain. Among these ancient winemaking countries, Slovenia was said to produce the best wine. And that country’s western region of Primorska—just across the border from Italy’s famed Friuli—had a reputation for making outstanding white wines every bit as delicious as those from Italy.
Like California after the fall of Prohibition, Slovenia’s Primorski region has bounced back, and with a vengeance! Made in Primorski’s premier subregion, Goriska Brda, this dry sparkling wine offers a creamy rich froth and a delightful palate of apple and citrus. Creamy bubbles and a winsome toasty finish make this Prosecco look alike the perfect wine for parties though this bubbly has the breed and elegance to be served alongside serious food, too.
· Primorksi is Slovenia’s westernmost region and is identical in topography and terroir to Italy’s Friuli just across the border.
· Goriska Brda, perhaps Primorksi’s top subregion, is often referred to as the “Tuscany of Slovenia” because it shares Tuscany’s historic villages, gentle green hills and acre upon acre of vineyards.
· This non-vintage bubbly was produced in the charmant method, used for most Cava and Prosecco, in which the secondary fermentation occurs in tank.
· Peneca Rebula makes their brut from 100% Ribolla Gialla—a classic grape of Northern Italy and Slovenia known for its rich color, refreshing acidity and floral aromatics.
Peneca Rebula is a medium bodied quality sparkling wine. The characteristic bouquet is reminiscent of green apple, citrus and cider enriched with a pleasant bread crust aroma. The sparkling wine has a fresh, crispy taste and pleasant mouth feel.
You'll taste various citrus notes as well as apple flavors in this wine. The creamy finish will also please your palate.
