Wine Mouth Tues evening. Ribolla Gialla from the Oslavia and Hum vineyards, vines aged 18 to 40 years, planted at 180–220 m, facing south and south east on ponca (opoka/flysch) soils. Harvested by hand first 10 days of October. Two to four months of maceration on the skins and aged four years in oak barrels (30 hl) then two years in bottle. TA 6 g/l, pH 3.7. According to Alex Simčič, 2012 was a warm year, less dry than 2011. Saša Radikon explained that you have to reduce production to get complete ripeness for this length of skin contact. Started green harvest early July, reducing the crop by up to 50% in 2018, for example. Deep orangey gold. Amber bright. Fabulous aroma – so intense. Orange, Seville orange marmalade (but not sweet), ginger, dried grasses, reduced apricots, spice. Deep and chewy and fresh on the palate. Amazing intensity of spiced, dried orange peel. A contrast between bitter/sour fruit sweetness and the sour, salty complexity. Orange-infused tea. Firmly tannic but so well balanced by the fruit. The flavour lasts forever and it is so utterly mouth-watering. Juicy, salty finish even in a tannic wine and then all that lovely apricot-ripe sweetness even though it is dry. (JH) JR18, 2012

In a sweet spot right now.

Like drinking Pomerol

First time trying this wine by Radikon. And it was more everything than I expected. Honey honey honey. What a treat.
