Macerated for 48-72 hours with skins, which gives this wine its salmon color. Made from perfectly ripe grapes that were picked by hand three times over the span of September. Controlled cold fermentation between 16° C – 18° C in stainless steel (inox) tanks. Fermentation is done through high-grade (noncommercial) yeasts. The wine is aged for 6 months in stainless steel tanks on lees, coarsely fined, and filtered before bottling.
The terrain of the entire Štajerska region is made up of steep-sloped vineyards and narrow, wind-rich hill valleys. A diverse geological soil composition consists mainly of sand and clay with marl in the lower layers. The vineyards spread out over the finest wine-growing sites of Haloze Hills as well as Slovenske Gorice.
Ptujska Klet winery cellars have been used for storing and aging wine since 1239. Located under the historic town of Ptuj founded by the Romans, the Ptuj Cellar is one of the oldest in Europe. Above it one can find a state-of-the-art modern winery focused on vinifying fresh, cool climate wines that the Štajerska region is famous for. Varieties such as Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc, and Pinot Noir thrive here and produce vibrant, elegant and fruit-forward wines. A casual, light blend known as Haložan is a fun local wine often used for wine spritzers, traditionally made by mixing it with sparkling water.
