Pilato Teran 2015 (Vrhunsko)

Teran is a quintessential Istrian dry red wine. The vines grow in ‘rust’ red terra rossa soil over a layer of limestone rock on a slightly elevated plain at 200m above sea level. The average age of the vines is around 15 years.

The climate is ideal for producing wines with a full expression of fruit. Hot summers with rain throughout the year keep the landscape verdant even in the height of summer as there are frequent thunder storms There is rarely snow in the winter, which are generally mild to cold as the Adriatic Sea stabilises the climate of coastal regions.

Tasting Notes

This Supreme Quality (Vrhunsko) Teran is a classic Bordeaux ruby red colour with a purplish tinge.
It has a distinctive fine, fruity and lingering bouquet, which makes Teran one of a kind.
Teran is also distinguished by high acid content (that is reduced by spontaneous natural Malolatic fermentation) a shade of tartness, and high extract which make it robust and vivid, yet pleasant and interesting.
Note the very low Total and Free Sulphite levels of the wine.
Suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans.
