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.

92 Points Wine & Spirits Magazine for the 2010: A woman walked into a bar and said, "I'll have an orange." The bartender looked confused. "Orange wine?" he asked. "Yes, an orange," she said. True story, and a strong case for a glass of this ribolla, which is neither red nor white. The color is spot-on orange, the aromas and pleasantly bitter flavors hover between white flowers, dried pear, orange pith, the pink of peach pit, and red notes of bosky cherries. The wine's direction and freshness seems to come from its pithy tannins rather than acidity, confounding any categorization other than orange.
