PREDICATE WINES

We also call these superior quality wines or botrytis wines, since their outstanding character is contributed by noble rot or in short the Botrytis. Noble rot, isn't that an oxymoron? In special wines not at all, a necessity even. Nature works in mysterious ways. Unveil them by tasting our predicate wines, which don't emerge from the vineyard on just any vintage. Many things must go right, from perfectly healthy grapes to dry yet misty weather dragging deep into the autumn or early winter, and some hungry wild game to boot. Ice wine, on the other hand, requires frost during just the right season. Predicate wines – rare, phenomenal and unique.

Laški rizling, suhi jagodni izbor (Welschriesling, Trockenbeerenauslese), 0.375 l

This is the pinnacle of the predicate pyramid, available for creation only on special years. Certainly not each one, perhaps twice in a decade if that. Many factors must come together: healthy and ripe grapes, an appropriately warm late autumn without too much humidity, allowing the noble rot to infuse the grapes, desiccating some into raisin-like distortion: the Trockenbeerenauslese (wines from selected dry berries). These are the only grapes sent to the press. If a normal grape picking typically results in a litre of wine per vine, the efficiency of the dry grape selection is ten times smaller. Another reason these wines are truly unique. The radiant golden Welschriesling flows into the glass with soft, oily luxury, on the nose boasting great complexity, a dance of dry fruit, fig and raisin notes in a balm of acacia honey. On the palate, a majestic intertwining of sweetness, acidity and alcohol, beautifully in line with one another. A luxurious, marvellous wine for quiet enjoyment.

Food Pairing

Being familiar with the rule: the sweeter the dessert, the sweeter the wine, we now reach for the apex of sweetness since the trockenbeerenauslese stands on the Olympus of predicate wines. You can start with pralines, preferably covered in dark chocolate. A Sachertorte chocolate cake will also just love the trockenbeerenauslese. If you're enticed by the notes of fig, raisin and honey, a thick and sweet dry fruit cake is likewise a splendid choice.
