Istenic No.1 NV

An extra dry sparkling wine. The name alone reveals that it is a very complex, well-aged wine, the finest. Made from a base wine of chardonnay and rumeni plavec, with at least three years of aging on lees. It is only produced in the best years, and in limited volumes. Was awarded a gold medal at the international wine fair in Verona in 1998 Named for Janez’s position as goalkeeper in his footballing days. It’s a blend of 60% Chardonnay with 30% Rumeni Plavec and 10% Pinot Noir, made in the best vintages only. It is a beautifully crisp wine with notes of lemon zest, poached pear, toasty notes from its three years on lees, and lingering mousse. A fine aperitif or match it with smoked fish starters.
