2021 Kobal Šipon-Furmint "Roots" Skin Contact
100% organic, dry farmed Furmint. 15 days warm skin maceration followed by spontaneous fermentation with no added yeast. Aged for 9 months in used French oak, with no fining or filtration, and only minimal sulfur addition used at blending.
Rose gold in color and bursting with exotic aromatics of honeysuckle, jasmine, and white flowers. On the palate, lively acidity bursting with white peach, Asian pear, nectarine and gingered minerality.
Another masterpiece of balance by Bojan. Distinctly a skin contact white, but still maintaining a subtle nuance and freshness. This wine is perfect at cellar temp. Pour alongside crudo, seafood based Asian dishes, chicken schwarma, or just enjoying an extremely refreshing wine that can be pondered about for hours.
