Our Notes: Rebula has been grown in Brda since the 13th century. Translating to “re-boil,” it references the wine’s proclivity to going through the secondary, malolactic fermentation. The grapes were hand harvested in late September from the Belo-Vhr and Neblo-Vhr vineyards, de-stemmed, and fermented on the skins for 30 days with wild yeast. Distinctively spicy and orange hued, it has aromas more reminiscent of red wine, including cherry and pepper. Despite a month of the skins, this is not an oxidatively styled orange wine, but rather a white wine with texture without sacrificing acidity. A perfect pairing with pork, freshwater fish, and earthy vegetables.

89 Points Wine Enthusiast Magazine: Rebula is known in Slovenia as “The queen of Brda.” This orange wine has aromas of toasted hazelnuts, black Chinese tea and mulled citrus rind. It's fermented with its skins and barrel aged for two years. A pleasant nutty oxidative character characterizes the finish. It would make any wine geek proud to pair it with a juicy steak.

Forget Red, White, and Rosé—Orange Wine Is What You Should Be Sipping This Fall
