Drink now or cellar for up to 7 years. No need to decant before serving.

Primoz Lavrenčič’s exciting venture was founded in 2009 when he decided to leave his family’s winery and pursue a bold new vision of natural winemaking and organic and biodynamic viticulture. Primoz’s family have deep roots in Slovenia’s Vipava Valley dating back to at least 1499, and for the past three generations they have been winemakers here. Primoz has put all of that insider knowledge to good use by planting indigenous varieties and seeking to work in harmony with nature wherever possible.

This particular bottling is made from Primoz’s only non-native variety, Pinot Noir. According to Primoz there is evidence that Pinot Noir has been grown in the Vipava Valley for centuries and it is well-suited to the conditions here. The vines are farmed organically and the grapes fermented using wild yeasts. The young wine then spends two years maturing in a combination of large 10-15 hectolitre and standard barriques before bottling.

On the nose there are classic Pinot hints of cherry and soft red berries like raspberries and strawberries while the first sip reveals a bright streak of acidity and smooth tannins. The vibrant flavour profile balanced by earthy notes and dried herbs makes this a great gastronomic wine which can be enjoyed with everything from charcuterie and cheeses to duck, game and tomato-based pasta dishes.
