Crushed & Cured

Gašper, Chardonnay/Rebula, Goriška Brda, Slovenia, 2022


This white wine is light straw in colour, the fresh and fruity nose displaying hints of green apple, pear, peach and citrus. The palate is crisp and rounded with a silky texture.

All fruit was pressed using a pneumatic press and each variety was fermented separately in 100% stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 14°C. Following blending, the wine was matured in 100% stainless steel tanks. In order to retain freshness and acidity, the wine did not undergo malolactic fermentation.

Gašper is located in Goriška Brda, which is the two thirds of Collio that stretches into Slovenia from Friuli Venezia Giulia in north-eastern Italy. Goriška Brda has a climate ideally suited to viticulture, with its proximity to both the Adriatic Sea and the Alps providing dry, warm summers with cooling breezes during the crucial ripening period.
