Date of establishment: 1934
Location: Plitvica-Apache, Stajerska, Podravje
Winemaker: The Steyer Winery – which is run by Danilo Steyer – is located in North-East Slovenia, on the border with Austria. The estate comprises 16 hectares of vineyards, which are situated above the village of Plitvica. Steyer is best known for its gewürztraminers. The wines derive their character and taste from the combination of a relatively warm climate and the cool winds of the nearby Alps.
Type: Dry white · 100% gewürztraminer · 14% alcohol
Vinification: After maceration (contact with the skins) for 24 hours, fermentation in stainless steel, temperature-controlled tanks. The wine is then aged in barrels (30% old oak barrels, the remainder in stainless steel tanks). The wine is filtered before bottling.
Tasting notes: An aromatic wine with aromas of rose and cloves. A lot of ripe citrus, tropical fruit aromas and typical rose aromas in the mouth. A wine with an elegant, velvety texture, beautifully balanced acidity and a long finish.
Tasting notes: Great with foie gras, Asian and spicy dishes.
