The eagerly anticipated release of Sasa Radikon’s Slatnik 2020. This is big on fresh tropical fruit flavour, vibrant and full of energy. Good texture with balanced acidity. Super fresh!
These wines make fantastic food pairing choices and always benefit from a few months rest, they can also cellar for years to come. The release was very limited this year so we only have one case available for this vintage.
Hand harvested Chardonnay and Friulano sees 2 weeks skin contact before 18 months maturation in oak casks, then 2 months ageing in bottle.
Now in the very capable hands of the larger than life Sasa Radikon, the Radikon estate was first started by his father Stanko Radikon. Stanko began his stewardship of the 18 hectares of vineyards, located near the Slovenian border, he came to the conclusion that the local indigenous grape, Ribolla Gialla, needed to be treated differently to other varieties if it was to reach its full potential. Radikon set about changing his methods and pioneered the movement towards both natural and orange wines. From the specially designed bottles and the high-quality corks that avoid cork tainted wine, the production method and the taste, these wines are truly unique and an experience all wine-lovers should have.
