In 2003/2004 we planted Sauvignon Blanc vines on Slovenian territory right next to our single-vineyard Zieregg and founded the winery DOMAINE CIRINGA.
In the best years we release a Reserve of Fosilni Breg Sauvignon Blanc. Amazing vintage 2017 with high quality grapes; the best parcels were separately fermented in a barrel. After 30 months of maturation, the wine has a great balance without any superficial flavors.
A fantastic complexity developed with aromas of pears and citrus fruits, mixed with hints of smokey flavours. Puristic style, spicy and intense minerality.
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.
