NEW TASTE OF VIPAVA - LANTHIERI WINES

New line Lanthieri wines



Vipava 1894   malvazija 0 75L

2017 Malvazija Lanthieri The best clusters in the Vipava Valley are selected for the Malvazija Lanthieri and vinified in steel tank. The wine is wonderfully approachable, yet shows appreciable depth, with an invigorating salty finish. 

Alcohol: 12% Residual sugar: 2.4 g Acidity: 4.7 g 



Vipava 1894   sauvignon blanc 0 75L

2017 Sauvignon Blanc Even a winegrower who has a great deal of experience with Sauvignon Blanc can find great pleasure in this ripe expression of the variety. The warm southern climate coaxes profound nuances of fruit from the Sauvignon, dark spices with juicy richness and presence on the palate, as well as a long and spicy finish. A wine with great potential for cellaring. Vinified in steel tank. 

Alcohol: 12.5% Residual sugar: 4.1 g Acidity: 4.6 g 



Vipava 1894   zelen 0 75L

2017 Zelen Lanthieri The Zelen is also an autochthonous child of the Vipava valley, and here the grapes also come from Slap. Vinified in steel tank. Zelen is the Slovenian word for ‘green’ and this colour is reflected brilliantly in the glass. The aromatic arc of the variety is characterised by its typical nutmeg spices. The old vines, up to sixty years of age, provide handsome tannins and concentrated structure. 

Alcohol: 11.5% Residual sugar: 3.6 g Acidity: 5.2 g 



Vipava 1894   pinela 0 75L


2017 Pinela Lanthieri Pinela is a variety indigenous to the Vipava Valley, and the grapes are harvested exclusively in the village of Slap. Vinified in steel tank, Pinela shows a concentrated core and a firm structure, one marked by the inherent tannin of the grape variety. These seemingly stern features are accompanied, though, by a vigorous juiciness, silky elegance, subtle spices and lively acidity. The wine is reminiscent of a spicy white wine from the Pinot family, with plenty of dynamic tension and great potential. 

Alcohol: 11.5% Residual sugar: 5.4 g Acidity: 4.5 g 



In the picturesque Vipava Valley in the west of Slovenia, at the foot of the steep mountain slopes of the imposing Nanos Range, at over 1400 metres above sea level – this is where one finds the cooperative winery Vipava, founded in the year 1894 and rich in tradition. 
 
At Vipava 1894, attention is focused upon vinifying the best wines that the region can yield: authentic of character, with a precise expression of their origins. There are some 300 grower members of the co-op – these are the most important partners in this great undertaking, working with the proprietor, winegrower Hannes Sabathi from the Steiermark in Austria. For generations now, the local growers have proudly cultivated and cared for the unique cultural landscape of the valley, and now support the visions and plans of the Styrian winemaker with their deep store of experience and viticultural wisdom. 
 
In Vipava, grapevines root themselves down into the ubiquitous flysch soils, which are primarily composted of calcareous marl and sandstone, while on the valley floor, gravel without sediments predominates. Along with the distinctive flysch, there is one further factor determining the character of the wines – the Bora, or burja. This wind arises in the hills of the Nanos range, where the warm air from the Adriatic collides with the cold mountain currents out of the Balkans. The Bora blows nearly constantly through the   valley – frequently with ferocious untamed velocity, and makes a deep impression upon the landscape, the inhabitants, and the wine.
