Grapes are harvested by hand under the crescent moon, since winemaker Matija is convinced that this is the perfect moment for new ideas. Berries are selected extremely carefully because of long skin contact and wild yeast fermentation. When harvested the berries are given to the clay amphora and then undergo 214 days of skin contact. After 214 days they are pressed and then racked back to amphora for maturation. Bottling is done at the last crescent moon.
This wine is where Matic has let his passion show. The juice and skins are aged together for 200+ days in a clay amphora, just as the ancients did. The wine is bottled unfiltered, direct from the clay vessel to the bottle, and as such presents with a cloudy deep lemon or orange hue. Upon first nose you’ll find apple or even cider notes to this wine. Given time to breathe the nose will open with lemon, orange blossom, honeysuckle notes and after longer even dries roses. On the palate the wine is dry with a fresh streak of acidity. Because of the aging with the grape skins there’s a slight tannic element to this wine, while reminding you of flavors from orange zest, sweet flowers, and green apple. The long finish leaves you with a pleasant dry feeling and remnants of peach. This is what you’ll want to open when you’re ready to start the party. Limited Production
