2006 Kmetija Štekar 1672 Rebula Prilo, Slovenia, Primorska, Brda, Wine Review
This is made from the Ribolla Gialla grape in Slovenia. It is fermented on its skins and matured for four years in Acacia barrels. Deep amber in color, clear and bright. The nose is tight but with coaxing shows orange peel, and slight cinnamon. Medium bodied. Dry. Lovely seamless texture. On the palate, white raisins, slight wax, slight honey but no fruit. Moderate acidity. Medium finish. An interesting wine that benefits from food. This wine is 16 years from vintage but it does not seem old or past, just different. It will work better with salty foods or perhaps shellfish.
