About wine: A wine of straw-like yellow colour with greenish tinges. A soft yet rich bouquet of the first intake takes us to blossoming spring meadows and orchards, reminding us of rhubarb compote with lemon zest and roasted apples, seasoned with ginger and cloves. In the mouth, we are cheered by its vivacity and perfect harmony of alcohol and acids. A delicate mineral note gives the wine a pleasant saltiness and elevates it to the role of an exceptional aperitif. The complexity of the wine reveals itself in the long and promising finish, calling for another sip.


Pairing suggestions: The Erzetič Rebula is recommended to be served with vegetable tempura, vegetable soups, risotto and pasta, seafood, cottage cheese soufflé, freshwater and saltwater fish, as well as next to various stews, grilled chicken, delicate cheeses, and numerous other dishes which call for Rebula’s freshness. The ideal serving temperature is between 8 and 10 °C.
