Movia Rebula 2020

Movia Rebula is Brda's white queen. Inviting golden amber colour. A rich bouquet of gooseberries, blackcurrants, apple skins and orange peel with gentle honey and stoney mineral undertones. Dry, medium-bodied with a full and linear taste. Salty and savoury mineral character balanced by fruity notes of sweet tangerine, ripe pear, white peach and dried apricot. Persistent honey and mineral finish.

100% Ribolla. The harvesting of the grapes is done manually from a 2.5 hectares vineyard that practices organic cultivation. The vines are on average 66-years-old with single guyot vine training, growing in marl and sandstone soils. Fermentation begins spontaneously in large steel tanks. Second fermentation occurs in 220 litre French oak barriques  on fine lees. Finally ageing for 18 months in oak barriques and 4 months in bottles laid on their side.

Fun fact: The name Ribolla (in Italian) stems from "ribollire", meaning to re-boil. The name is perfect for this variety since it goes through a second fermentation in the spring after cool temperatures stop the first fermentation.
