Our Notes: Long prized for its vibrant character and uncanny ability to age, ‘Ravan’ is the house name for the local variety formerly known as Tocai Friulano, Sauvignon Vert, Sauvignonasse, and most recently Jakot. No one can agree on the name. Grapes were hand harvested in late September, de-stemmed, fermented with wild yeast in large oak vats for 2 weeks, and then transferred to mostly used French barrique for malolactic fermentation. After 12 months on the lees the wine was bottled unfiltered. For those who like Northeastern Italian whites, this will push you comfortably out of your comfort zone. The 2011 vintage lends a certain “grapey” honesty coupled with fresh herbs and tangy citrus. Pairs well with cured salty flavors and spring vegetables. Best served at cellar temperature.

90 Points Wine Enthusiast Magazine: Ravan is the local Slovenian name for the Fruilano grape. This tasty wine is medium gold to dark straw in color with aromas of honeysuckle, passion fruit and freshly baked apple pie. The finish is pleasantly astringent with lingering flavors of hazelnut. It's perfect to pair with game birds such as duck or quail.
