Sauvignon Blanc from the top vinyard Kozana
Fallstaff rated with 93 Points!
Fascinating site wine from the house of Edi Simcic. the Kozana vineyard is one of the best locations of the winery. Aligned to the south and south-west, at an altitude of 110 m, the vineyard extends in the Goriska Brda region.
Edi Simcic is the master of intense, powerful Burgundy-style white wines, to which he remains true here. Expanded in barriques, the Kozana Sauvignon unfolds its full potential. Especially the interplay of spice, fruit and minerality makes it so engaging. Gooseberries, lemons, cassis, apricots, Mediterranean and local herbs such as sage and lemon balm. Connected with vanilla, fine smoke aromas, brioche and elderflower. Nice saltiness.
Lots of power on the palate. juicy, rich in finesse, exciting structure and a very long finish. He shows us a new side of the Sauvignon Blanc variety, far away from grassiness and dominating gooseberries. A real pleasure!
