In 2003 we planted Sauvignon Blanc vines on Slovenian territory right next to our single-vineyard Zieregg.
The combination of the microclimate and the rich shell limestone soil with cambisol provides ideal conditions for accentuated, long-living, authentic and mineralic wines. As distinctive sign of origin the name of this Slovenian winery is "DOMAINE CIRINGA", the wine is called "Fosilni Breg" (which means fossils mountain).
The market launch was in 2009. The label shows a sea star fossil and demonstrates the origin and the balance of this mineralic and straightforward Sauvignon Blanc.
Aromas of ananas, pear and pepper. Mineralic and puristic in taste. Fine acidity structure.
BACKSTAGE “WINE ALONG THE LINE”
As a family and as winemakers we follow principles in life as well as at work. Organic agriculture is one of the principles we hold dear. With the end of the 2018 vintage we made it public and started a never ending journey. Year after year we understand a tiny bit more. Now we grow not on acreage but on responsibilities.
