Domaine Ciringa ‘Fosilni Breg’ Sauvignon Blanc, Stajerska, Slovenia 2018

In 2005 the Tement family of Austria founded Domaine Ciringe in Slovenia. Although separated by a border, the Tement Winery in Austria and Domaine Ciringe are actually neighbors. The soil here is coralline limestone, composed of a fossilized coral life over 200 million years old. The label shows one of the many sea star fossils found in the single vineyard Ciringa. The combination of the microclimate and the coralline limestone soil provides perfect conditions for growing textured yet highly mineral Sauvignon Blanc, similar to Sancerre in France. This wine is simply stunning and rivals other wines twice its price.
