Edi Simcic, Rebula Riserva
(RAY-boo-lah ree-ZAYR-vah)


Tasting Notes: Virtually unknown in the U.S., the Rebula varietal is one of the oldest grapes from the Goriška Brda area, and it represents 35% of all vineyards in the zone. Not known for its breath-taking aromatics when young, Rebula shows subtle white blossoms on the nose, but with bottle aging, becomes simply remarkable, presenting pleasing citrus and apple on the nose. In fact, it is one of the finest ageworthy white wines we have ever come across, and will be even better in 10 years. In classic Simcic style, the wine is full of character for the terroir.
