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% ranina (bouvier) · 13% alcohol
Vinification: After pressing, low-temperature fermentation in stainless steel tanks to preserve the flavour of the ranina grape to the full. The wine is also aged in stainless steel tanks and filtered before bottling.
Tasting notes: Ranina has a lemon-yellow colour, revealing aromas of soft muscat with a hint of citrus. A very aromatic wine, with a soft and elegant mouthfeel. A beautifully balanced wine.
Food pairing: Excellent with veal, white meat, poultry, pasta or risotto. Also great as an aperitif.
