Gasper Chardonnay/Ribolla 2016 (1x75cl)

Gasper is located in Goriška Brda, which is the two thirds of Collio stretching into Slovenia from Friuli-Venezia Giulia in north-eastern Italy. Goriška Brda was a climate ideally suited to viticulture, with its proximity to both the Adriatic Sea and the Alps providing dry, warm summers with cooling breezes during the crucial ripening period. The Gasper wine estate is a joint venture between a local cooperative and the Carman family, who have been in the hospitality and wine business for over 50 years. At the helm of the cellar is Darinko Ribolica, a respected oenologist from Goriška Brda. He uses Slovenia’s local varieties, deeply rooted in Germanic, Slavic and Roman cultural influences, for creating wines in a modern, fresh style.

The Gasper vineyards are between 10 and 25 years old, and characterised by ‘opoka’ marl soil and excellent sun exposure on terraced, hillside rows. There is also the benefit of altitude, ranging from 80-200 metres above sea level, which helps the grapes retain acidity and aromatics. Vines are single Guyot trained and planted at a density of 4,000 to 5,000 per hectare. All picking is done by cooperative partners, family members and friends, which allows for a careful selection of fruit that enhances the quality of the final wine.

2016 was an unusual harvest with various challenges due to extreme weather conditions at the beginning of the year. This resulted in a smaller yield than in previous years. However, the weather later improved and was perfect until harvest and fruit was of a high quality.

All fruit was pressed using a pneumatic press. 95% of the wine was fermented in stainless steel, with the remainder fermented in large, 6,000 litre Slavonian oak casks. After blending these components, the wine was matured in 100% stainless steel tanks. The wine did not undergo malolactic fermentation to retain freshness and acidity.

Light straw in colour, this is a fresh and fruity wine that displays hints of peach and citrus. A vibrant acidity and lovely roundness, from 5% of the wine being fermented in oak, combine on the palate in this compelling Slovenian blend.

Gasper Pinot Grigio 2015 (1x 75cl)

Gasper is located in Goriška Brda, which is the two thirds of Collio stretching into Slovenia from Friuli-Venezia Giulia in north-eastern Italy. Goriška Brda was a climate ideally suited to viticulture, with its proximity to both the Adriatic Sea and the Alps providing dry, warm summers with cooling breezes during the crucial ripening period. The Gasper wine estate is a joint venture between a local cooperative and the Carman family, who have been in the hospitality and wine business for over 50 years. At the helm of the cellar is Darinko Ribolica, a respected oenologist from Goriška Brda. He uses Slovenia’s local varieties, deeply rooted in Germanic, Slavic and Roman cultural influences, for creating wines in a modern, fresh style.

The grapes for this wine come from the Goriška Brda wine growing region at altitudes ranging between 80-200 metres above sea level. The vineyards are terraced and face south-west, east and south. Vines are trained using the single Guyot method and are planted at densities of 4,000 - 5,000 vines per hectare. The vines are between 10-25 years old and sit on a mixture of flysch, marlstone and sandstone soils. The climate here is sub-Mediterranean and experiences a mixture of warm sea air and the influence of cold winds from the Alps.

Weather conditions were favourable with intense heat during the day and night. This is reflected in the distinctive aromas and characteristics of the 2015 wines. During the summer, there were many sunny days, combined with just the right amount of precipitation. Harvest started in the first half of September and ended on 1st October.

Fruit was pressed in a pneumatic press and then fermented and matured in stainless steel containers. No malolactic fermentation was allowed to take place to preserve the freshness and fruit character of the grapes.

On appearance, the wine is straw yellow colour with a subtle shade of pink. The nose is reminiscent of pear, grapefruit, pineapple and cinnamon. Well balanced, this medium-bodied Pinot Grigio has a lovely warmth to it. The finish is silky, with lingering citrus aromas.
