Hrastov Hrib

Vintage 2021

The farmer should only be an assistant to nature. Choose the right grape variety for each plot of land. Let the bees, the earthworms, the birds, and the organisms invisible to the naked eye do their work. Let the soil come to life by the diversity of plants, by those whom the soil calls, let the vines be protected by the winds which the farmer has taken into account when choosing the soil. The first ripe grapes will show whether his choice of vine variety coincides with that which the Creator has assigned to the soil he has chosen.

Throughout the years of the search for a Vipava identity, through the literature of previous generations, through the fallacies of time, forgetting everything, including the names of the vine varieties, has been the only true guide to the truth. Vines as such do not have names in nature, they only have characteristics. They were given a name by man. Today, I no longer look for indigenous varieties by their names, but by their essence. This way of thinking has led me to varieties that our land has never known before. In essence, they have everything that indigenous varieties used to have. These varieties, like the indigenous varieties of the past, are grown today without any spraying at all.

Marlon Hrastov Hrib is a cuvée from the vineyard of the same name. The unsprayed grapes were picked by hand in the first half of September. Spontaneous fermentation and malolatic fermentation followed. The wine matured for a year and a half in old 225l oak barrels. Marlon Hrastov Hrib is bottled without filtration and without fining.
