Burja Zelen 2021

Burja Zelen has a golden yellow colour with green highlights. A youthful, fruity bouquet of white flowers, citrus, dried apricots and oyster shells. A lighter and well-balanced wine with a refreshing acidity on the palate. Vibrant fruit flavours of apricots and peaches over a saline mineral backbone, leading into a long and elegant finish of honey, bitter almonds and cream.

100% Zelen, an indigenous Slovenian grape variety. The fruit comes from Burja Estate vineyards in Vipava Valley, Slovenia. The vineyards are treated according to the principles of biological and biodynamic production. 

Burja Estate winemaker Primož Lavrencic works with nature to encourage character and authenticity is his wines, always looking for spontaneous fermentation and diversity. Primoz macerates the fruit on the skins for 2 days. The wine is then fermented and matured in concrete tanks to preserve the natural character of the grape.
