Mitja Sirk 2020 Bianco IGT

This wine is sourced from two select vineyards in Plessiva and Mernicco at 75 and 100 meters above sea level, respectively. The vines are 25-35 years in age, grown orgaincally on the stony “ponca” soils of compacted sandstone and marl. The wine’s alcoholic fermentation and elevage occurs primarily in steel tanks, with 10% done in neutral barrel. The wine is aged an additional 7-8 months with light lees stirring for the first 4-5 weeks of elevage. The wine is bottled after a very light filtration and no, or very minimal sulfur addition (depending on vintage). What remains is the idea of a wine that is easily drinkable, while presenting a strong aromatic character combined with a sharp and clean ending.
