£40.00
Tax included.
Stanko Radikon was one of the natural wine world's true icons and his legendary work in the Oslavia region of Friuli, right by the border with Slovenia in Italy's northeast is now being carried on by his son Sasa. The wines benefit from what a soil type the Slovenian's call 'Ponca', a complex mix of sandstone, clay and marine deposits that produces powerful, mineral rich wines. With long macerations and time ageing in old oak casks, they produce wines of rare intensity.

Sivi is a biodynamic, low sulphur wine where the grapes spend around 12 days on the skins giving it an unbelievably beautiful dark candied orange colour that is truly unique. On the palate, this is where things get fun, the wine is complex with the most prominent flavour being tangerine which is accompanied by a touch of spice and a savoury kind of texture. A hybrid between an orange and a rose, as the light pink skins from the pinot grigio gives the wine a distinct pink colour.
