The line represents mature wines, aged in oak barrels. They are produced from grapes with a prolonged maturing process in the vineyard. Cold maceration is followed by fermentation and resting on yeast. The aging lasts for two to three years in carefully selected oak barrels. Suitable for drinking immediately after bottling, but can be aged for the next five to ten years. The wines are still dominated by fruit notes (albeit more mature fruit), which are pleasantly intertwined with other aromas of maturing.
- The story of Pinots Noirs
- The story of Pinot Noirs is intertwined with the story of the Vipava Valley, a place of diverse macro and micro locations. As a general rule, pinot noir prefers the lower positions and at these altitudes, the variety boasts distinct freshness and aromaticity. The diversity of locations and ground compositions in the valley, which stretches for 40 kilometres, results in richness and a profoundly inspired wine creation process. This bestows the House of Pinots a unique added value.
