Our Notes: This Rumeni Muškat (or Gelber Muskateller as it is called in Austria just across the border) is a specialty of the estate. A perennial Gold Medal winner at the San Francisco International Wine Competition, the acting American Ambassador makes the short drive from Slovenia’s capital Ljubljana to personally present the award to Črnko. These friendly diplomatic missions have led to friendships between the wine maker with two successive U.S. ambassadors. Come harvest time you can find the ambassador side-by-side with the Silvo Črnko family picking the ripe fruit which he’ll find in the new vintage. Oily textured, orange peel aromatics, intensely floral, and with a refreshing balance of sugar and acidity. This is an easy-going happy bottle of wine.

2 Stars New York TimesEasygoing and refreshing with orange and tropical fruit flavors.
