Grape - Merlot
Where - Kojsko, Slovenia
What - Janko and Tamara are the newest duo at the Kmetija Stekar winery in the Brda region of Kojsko. There has been wine production at this site since 1672, so there's a lot of pressure to continue the legacy of care and respect at the centre of their ethos.
Wine is produced here without additives, without wild chemistry or crazy-new technologies - just how it should be. Their goal is to inspire emotions with their wine. For us, their Merlot inspired pure joy, and maybe a little surprise given that no one in the team is particularly keen on the variety. If there's one to sway us, though, it's this guy.
This is bright, fruity and exuberant. It has a vibrancy that we perhaps weren't expecting, but are so glad we found. The steep slopes where the vines are grown might have something to do with this. It's ruby red and full of cherries, black fruit and a touch of earth.
Bright, vibrant, fruity. Vegan. Organic practicing. Low intervention. ABV 13%.
