Erzetič Cabernet Sauvignon amphora
Goriška Brda, Slovenia
In Brda Cabernet Sauvignon is exposed to its limits. In good vintages, such as 2008, it shows well why Cabernet is so popular and highly regarded among Brda winemakers.
Cabernet sauvignon 2008 is made out of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. After three weeks of maceration it has spend 18 month in partially new French oak and then maturated for 12 months in amphoras.
It shows deep ruby red colour with some garnet tinges that reveals a rather warm vintages and some ageing. The nose is subtle of ripe red fruits, chocolate and oak. Dry, medium bodied, with obvious and ripe tannins. Higher acidity gives it a good share of drinkability and well preserved freshness.
