Gasper is located in Goriška Brda, which makes up the two thirds of Collio stretching into Slovenia from Friuli-Venezia Giulia in north-eastern Italy. Goriška Brda has 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 wine and hospitality 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 to create wines in a modern, fresh style.

The grapes for this wine are grown at altitudes ranging between 80-200 metres above sea level. The vineyards are terraced and face south-west, east and south. The climate here is sub-Mediterranean and experiences a mixture of warm sea air and the influence of cold winds from the Alps.

2018 was a wonderful vintage with no hail or frost experienced, resulting in a very successful harvest. A rainy spring led to an early summer and temperatures were warm and not excessively hot. Conditions at harvest time were ideal with warm, dry days and cool nights.

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

100% Pinot Grigio/Pinot Gris.

Residual sugar = 3.7g/litre.

The wine is straw yellow in 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 richness, with a silky finish and citrus aromas.

ABV = 13.5%.

Sonberk, Noble Rot Riesling 2017 (1x75cl)

** STOCK WITH US 14th OCTOBER **

Awarded a Platinum medal and 97 points at the 2020 Decanter World Wine Awards (click link for details and review).

For other 2020 DWWA winners, click here.

Sonberk was established in 2003 but evidence of winemaking in the area goes back to the 13th century, when the south exposed sloping location was originally called `Sonnberg`. Nowadays the Sonberk vineyard is 45 hectares with an extraordinary view of the Palava Hill. Sustainable viticulture is practiced in the growing of Palava, Riesling, Traminer and Sauvignon.

Winemaking in the Czech Republic can be traced back to Roman times as archaeological excavations have unearthed viticulture and winemaking artifacts. There are two wine growing regions defined in Czech law; Moravia and Bohemia. Moravia is responsible for 96% of all production.

Extractive Riesling from a great vintage. Significant acid is balanced by higher residual sugar, typical apricot for Riesling, supplemented with botrytis, accompanied by petroleum tones in the future.

100% Riesling. 

Residual sugar = 17.8 g/litre (noticeably off-dry).

A beautiful Riesling from the Czech Republic, aromas of white blossom and lime zest are in abundance on the bouquet. The palate is zesty and fresh with notes of honeysuckle, dried apricots, a subtle spiciness and a flinty minerality which lingers on the palate. Elegant and refined with plenty of character and body.

ABV = 13.5%.

100% Riesling.

Residual sugar = 4.6 g/litre (ie dry, with just the very slightest sniff of off-dryness).

The aroma is beautifully fruity, accompanied by tones of linden blossom. In the taste of juicy apricots, in the presence of wonderful acidity, delicate minerals and long juicy flavour.

Intense perfume with character of delicate honey and pain d'epices over lime marmalade and fresh apricots. Complex palate, concentrated with a zesty acidity and rich texture.

ABV = 13.5%.
