Origin: Slovenia
Grapes: Sauvignon Blanc

Fresh and approachable everyday wine, coming from the Slovenian side of the famous Zieregg plot - remarkably very much wine for the price. Juicy with a mineral mouthfeel and lots of citrus.

Fosilni Breg - a mountain like a sea. The name says it all, because it is interspersed with coral limestone soils, also called shell limestone. It is not uncommon to stumble across fossilised sea creatures here. These are ideal conditions for the Sauvignon Blanc vines, which come from the Slovenian part of the top site Zieregg. In the cellar, the wine is aged gently and with sufficient time in large wood for 18 months before Armin and Stefan Tement bottle it unaltered and unfiltered. The Fosilni Breg Sauvignon Blanc is expressive and unbelievably balanced, all parameters harmonise with each other, which is really fun in the glass and makes for animating drinking. On the nose we find some gooseberry, apricot and citrus fruits, also herbal hints of mint.
