Kobal Wines 'White Label' Furmint, Podravje, Slovenia

Haloze Hills Harmony: Provenance and Pedigree

Nestled in the picturesque landscape of Podravje, Slovenia, Kobal Wines introduces the 'White Label' Furmint, a true expression of the region's viticultural finesse. Our Wine Dispensary experts are often captivated by the tale of this boutique winery, located near Ptuj, Slovenia's oldest town. With a wine culture stretching back almost 2000 years, Kobal Wines is a beacon of tradition and innovation in the Styria region.

The Furmint grapes, heralding from the high-quality winegrowing sites of Haloze, are a testament to the area's exceptional terroir. Haloze, a sub-wine region known for its hilly terrain and rich geological soil composition, mainly of marl, provides the perfect cradle for these overripe grapes. The vineyards, perched between 250 and 400 meters and aged from 15 to 57 years, benefit from a continental climate with hot summers and cold winters, ideal for nurturing grapes with a distinct character.

A Symphony of Flavors: Flavor and Aroma Experience

The 'White Label' Furmint is a masterpiece of flavors and aromas. The bouquet, a harmonious blend of herbs, white flowers, and tropical fruit, vividly portrays the Furmint variety's varietal characteristics. It's an aromatic journey that our Wine Dispensary team often likens to a walk through Haloze's lush landscapes.

On the palate, this Furmint unfolds its full-bodied richness, where acid and alcohol are intertwined to create a symphony of taste. The wine's fullness is balanced by a refreshing crispness, resulting in a delightful experience that pairs beautifully with the local gastronomic delights of Haloze and Styrian cuisine.

Crafted with Care: Technical and Production Details

Kobal Wines' dedication to showcasing the purity of terroir and varietal expression is evident in every aspect of the production process. The grapes undergo a cold maceration between 24-72 hours, a technique that enhances the wine's depth of flavor and aroma. The wine is then partly matured in French oak, adding subtle complexity and a hint of sophistication to its profile.

Sustainable winegrowing practices are at the heart of Kobal Wines' philosophy. The integrated cultivation approach ensures environmentally friendly grape production, maintaining the natural balance and health of the vineyards. Double Guyot's pruning shape, 2500 vines per hectare, and a yield of 2 kg per vine all contribute to the wine's exceptional quality.

The 'White Label' Furmint is not just a bottle of wine; it's a bottle of commitment - to tradition, the land, and the art of winemaking. Served at an ideal temperature of 6-8˚C, it invites connoisseurs and casual drinkers alike to explore the depth and diversity of Slovenian wines. A sip of Kobal Wines 'White Label' Furmint is a sip of Podravje's heart and soul. Cheers to a journey of discovery and enjoyment! 🍇🍷✨
