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.

93 Points Wine & Spirits Magazine: Jean-Michel Morel keeps his ribolla on the skins for 30 days, resulting in a dense and textured white, the flavors of juicy pineapple and tangerine streaming around and through the tannins. Scents of dried flowers and saffron add delicacy, while notes of chai tea, anise and truffle add savor and spice. The tannins give the wine a tensile character that suggests it will deliver even more with time in the cellar.
