Prlekija, the land between the rivers Mura and Drava, is a colorful world of terraced vineyards, peaceful valleys and furrowed fields. It is the home of a people who are by their nature both tranquil and friendly, witty and proud, vigorous and wise and open. Prlekija and its people.
Rich stone fruit and stone on the nose. Zesty and a bit green on the palate. Slight effervescence. Peach, pear and a nice salinity on the palate. 87 pts. 11/3/12
On the nose, crisp lychee, pear, almond and mineral. It's big in minerality on the palate as well. Crisp and fresh with flavors of grapefruit, light apricot, zesty apple, peach and a light nutty quality. Coats the mout toward the finish with a pleasant melon flavor. Nice! 91 pts 7/7/12
Slightly effervescent in the glass. Similar in acidity and crispness to the Sauvignon Blancs I've had. The palate was a bit off-putting at first, but mellowed out after some time in the glass. I attribute this to being in a stelvin-capped bottle. It needed to open up a bit. Definitely young and in need of settling down. Once mellowed, palate had nice notes of citrus and pear, followed by a decent amount of minerality. Short finished, over all decently balanced, just perhaps too young to be had now.
