2015 Nestarec Forks & Knives Red
Milan Nestarec studied winemaking with Aleš Kristančič of Movia, where he learned a great deal about the delicate art of making skin fermented white wines. No herbicides are used and the vines are worked organically. He believes that gentle methods of growing vines and processing gives the best result. All wines in the cellar are fermented spontaneously and they are usually vinified in oak and acacia barrels. Grapes are hand harvested and destemmed. The wine is fermented in 2000-liter stainless steel tanks for about 10 days with indigenous yeasts. It then rests in tank for about 10 months with no interference with the wine until it is bottled. The wine is bottled without fining or filtering and zero sulfur is added.
