Radikon Ribolla Gialla 2017
Radikon Ribolla Gialla is a richly textured, savoury and complex orange wine. Hazy orange colour. Explosive aromas of quince, dried apricots, fresh orange zest and pressed wildflowers. The rich and full-bodied palate has fine tannins and a bracing acidity that beautifully combines density and freshness. A mineral vein underscores big flavours of mature apricot, candied tangerine zest and ginger.
Fun Fact: The half litre (500 ml) bottle is perfect for one person when you fancy a night to yourself with only top notch grub and a stunning wine for company.
100% Ribolla Gialla. The fruit comes from Radikon's vines that grow in the hills of Friuli on the Slovenian border of Italy. The terroir features sloped, terraced vineyards and soil – called 'ponca' in dialect – that imparts lots of minerality to the wines. Ponca, or flysch, has layers and blends of minerals from the prehistoric sea bed, clay and sandstone.
Handpicking of the fruit at its optimum point of maturation. 4 months maceration on the skins. The wine ages for 2 years in barrel, then 3 years in bottles. No added sulphur.
Ageing potential: Impressive ageing potential, drink now or cellar for the next 20 years!
