Shorter maceration of grape mash. Pressing and clarifying of grape must with nitrogen. By using this procedure, it’s possible to achieve immediate protection from oxygen and the loss of fragrance. Immediate fermentation of slightly unclear must with selected yeasts on the temperature between 14 °C and 16 °C. Wine has passed partial biological deacidification. Two month-long wine ageing on lees and with stirring until the first settling of the wine into stainless-steel barrels.
Zelen is authentic Slovenian grape variety that is found in Vipava Valley - the biggest wine region of western Slovenia. The wine is of the yellow colour of wheat with shades of green. Fragrance of ripe peaches and pears. The flavour of this wine is light, seductive, harmonious and with pleasant fading.
Zelen makes a good combination with light cold and hot fish dishes, cold cuts, vegetable appetisers and poultry.
