Silvo and his daughter Tamara ferment a slew of different white grapes in one vineyard to make this liter bottle. If you were in Slovenia, you'd bring your carboy or 2 little coke bottle to fill up and take home. Bright, fresh, low alcohol, and delicious.
The Črnko farm is located on the eastern side of Slovenia, north of Maribor and just south of the Austrian border. This wine is mostly made from Laški Rizling (Welschriesling), Sauvignon Blanc, and Rizvanec (MüllerThurgau) and represents half of Črnko’s total production. Until the 2009 vintage it had only been sold locally in the nearby village of Jarenina from where the wine takes its name. All fruit is estate grown and comes from the family’s 6 hectares of mixed white varietals planted to the regions unique marl soils and sustainably farmed. High toned Laski Riesling and Ravenec, aromatic Muscats, and a silty minerality characteristic of the estate define this vintage. Thirst quenching and light on its feet with healthy acidity also make it difficult to set down.
