Product reviews
The Sauvignon Selekcija is sourced from fruit from both sides of the border with vines of between 20 and 40 years old planted on clay and marl soils. Grapes are macerated fro 4 days prior to ferment in stainless steel with wild yeasts. Aging then takes place in 4,000 litre conical oak (12 months) followed by 9 months in 500 litre tonneaux. Bottling takes place after a few months in barrel without filtration. An intense golden colour invites you to discover rich aromas and a well-developed body. Slow ageing has drawn out complex notes ranging from sage to paprika, from wild flowers to tobacco and leather: all rounded off in a long aftertaste.

The Slovenian region of Brda lies immediately to the east of Italy?s Collio region. The two denominations, in reality, comprise one contiguous quality wine zone whose terroir is rudely bisected by an international border. Today many winemakers and grapes cross the border in both directions on short journeys from vineyard to cellar. The Simcic family trace their wine making story in the region back to 1860. The aim is to respect the historic traditions of the region in both viticulture and winemaking. The vineyards are farmed organically, yields are kept low and only natural yeasts are used. The wines are divided into three distinct ranges: Classic, selection and the top cru, Opoka.
