Notes for vintage 2016

A wine of slightly cloudy, amber colour. Its dense texture quickly stops the vortex after swirling it in the glass.

It has an intense and refined, fruit-driven bouquet. We perceive ripe apricot, peach, baked apples, yellow plum, grape berries soaked in alcohol, dried mango and pineapple slices, candied orange. Followed by chamomile, black tea, lemongrass, nettle and thyme. The following swirl evokes white pepper, toffee, caramel, autumn leaves, and finally, a hint of flintstone.

Lunar feels youthful and soft on the palate, but the interplay of crisp freshness and mineral salinity takes centre stage. We perceive pleasant tannins that express its unique production process.

Lunar has an intense taste. It boasts a vigorous body of complex structure, with accentuated elegance and a lasting persistency.

A wine that we enjoy now, even though it is a real youngster that will only develop and mature—an incredible display of a rebula showing extract and harmony.

While sipping this wine, I felt like walking through a meadow full of yellow dandelion flowers.

The Process

Vinification process: This wine is made with two touches. First touch is done during the harvest, when we pick the grapes; Ribolla grapes are destemmed and poured in barrique barrels (without usage of pump). And second, when we do batonage and add wine for 8 months. After 8 months we pour wine into the bottles. Lunar has no added sulphur.
Aging: Aging with maceration for 8 months in oak barrels with customized caps.
