It is time we return to the Istenič family and taste their vintage Penina named Gourmet rose. A brut sparkler that has this name for a reason, as it is an excellent aperitif wine, but it will be a great addition to seafood and even beef tartare.

A pure, 100 % Pinot noir that is produced only in the best vintages. Only freerun juice is used in the production, and it is marked by a four-year ageing sur-lie before its disgorging and final dosage of brut levels.

Brilliant, light pink in colour, with numerous medium-sized and durable pearls.

Its aromas are intense. We notice nectarine, red-orange, raspberry rose, and wild strawberry, all gently supported by scents of butter and bread.

The taste is dry, soft, at the same time, our mouth is refreshed by crisp acidity in combination with gentle bubbles that leaves a distinctive mineral aftertaste. A Penina with an intense and elegant taste, structured with lasting persistency.

An ideal wine for the coming festivities. A bottle will cost you approximately 15 Eur, and you can order it at Vina Posavja, Vinoteka Sodček, Be wines and Luma ekskluziv.
