Rodica Malvasia Sparkling .750L Organic Slovenia
Organic, Biodynamic, No sulfites added, Vegan
A naturally made sparkling Malvasia Istriana from Slovenian Istria, Slovenia. Think orange wine meets pet-nat meets traditional method sparkling.
2013 harvest goes through 3+ day skin maceration period, followed by 5 months in used 2,500L acacia wood barrels and then 8 months in stainless steel tanks. In October of 2014, unfermented Malvasia from the 2014 vintage is added to the wine. The combined wine is bottled the next day in order to create the secondary fermentation in the bottle in a natural way. The resulting wine is not disgorged, hence the sediment in the bottle and the crown cap.
Very unique wine made in extremely limited quantities. Exceptionally elegant and clean, but still funky, particular, and specific.
