The Wine Recommendations
|Where||Slovenska Istra, Primorska, Slovenia|
The Indie Wineries Slo/Cro portfolio has so much to offer. With this bottle, it’s hard to understand why malvasia has such a crappy reputation. Grown on the south west of Slovenia, from limestony soils, it’s a lovely fragrant grape, it’s completely dry, lively, sharp-minded and headed towards mandarin.
Audrey & Christian Binner
The 2008 vintage in Alsace was a zippy, high acid year. The Zusslin (you’ll read about it below) and Binner are two complex darlings that can prove it. Serve them side-by-side for a tasting exploration. Binner’s had more limpid juiciness with a wild mandarin edge. It’s a cooling wine and sampled over five days, it got better with each sip.
