2018 Kobal Reserve Sauvignon Blanc
This unique, 100% Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from one of winemaker Bojan Kobal’s most prestigious vineyards plantecd in 1974 on the steep slopes of the Haloze hills. Since the Roman times, Haloze has been considered one of the top wine-growing sites in Central Europe. The grapes are hand-harvested, and spontaneous fermentation with maceration kicks in, and the wine is then finally matured in barrique for twenty-four months before bottling. This results in a dense, weighty Sauvignon Blanc. The bouquet is intense and combines varietal perceptions with maturation in wood. We detect thyme, elderflower, pear and apple with a slight gooseberry note. At the same time, scents of vanilla, butter and beeswax are glimpsed.
The taste is intense, soft and moderately warm. Emphasized freshness cleanses our palate and leaves a touch of minerality. A full-bodied wine of intensity and elegance, with a lasting taste.
