Kmetija Hedele, a winery located at the very heart of the Vipava River Valley in Slovenia, the Vipaska Dolina DO.
They work with the Malvasia, the Chardonnay and the Sauvignon varieties producing single-variety wines. At the winery they vinify each plot on its own. They have a bit less than 10 hectares in total for a total number of 30.000 bottles. They are slowly adding several small plots to the winery to increase that number to 15 hectares. Each plot goes straight to oak barrels (obviously from France) after pressing for a period close to a year, then it stays another year in steel tanks and the final blend is done before bottling.
They work organically in all their vineyards and also they are very conscious about their carbon footprint. Because of this, instead of building a new winery they are utilizing small basements in different houses in the village of Gaberje.
A innteresting Sauvignon from these great wine producers. Notes of tropical fruit, honey and minerals on the nose - well balanced with good acidity. Yummy!
