Kabaj Beli Pinot

Kabaj Beli Pinot is a sexy wine and the perfect introduction of orange wines (otherwise called amber wines). Golden amber colour in the glass. The preamble is a ripe and full bouquet of caramel, honey, balsamic notes, rosemary and Mediterranean spices. It starts its performance with a little bite at the start, before transitioning to a smooth ride that lasts until the very end. Bright and fruity on the palate with flavours of ripe apricot and peaches, dried pineapple, and just a hint of salted caramel and orange.

100% Beli Pinot/Pinot Blanc. The grapes come from Kabaj's 15 hectares of local vineyards in the Brda region. 

Manual harvesting before 15 days maceration in inox, wood and concrete vessels. The wine ages for 24 months in 225L French oak barrels and an additional 6 months in the bottles.
