2008 Movia Modri Pinot Nero, Slovenia

 

Winemakers Notes:

Year zero for the Movia estate, as some would say, dates back to Anno Domini 1820 when the family's daughter married Mr Kristančič. Ever since the estate has been cultivating grapevines, alongside traditional fruit production so characteristic of the Brda region, with increasing success and ingenuity.

Late grape harvesting, hand-picked with a short period between the picking and fermentation – 2 hours maximum. Beginning of fermentation in large fermentation tanks with natural yeast picked out from the same grapes harvested during pre-harvesting (5 %). Maceration takes place from 3 to 4 weeks till the completion of fermentation until the cap of grape skins sinks to the bottom of the tank and clears the wine naturally.

The nose is unmistakably of Pinot Noir, with gentle leather, earthy notes and forest fruits forming a very fine sensation. Dry on the palate with brave, firm, silky tannins, with just enough acidity that nicely lift its character and are giving the wine its longevity.
