Borut Blažič's Natural Jakot Plešivo 2014


The farm is run by Borut Blažič who is the third generation of winemakers. His farm dates back to 1890 when his great-grandfather Peter Blažič bought the farm and dedicated it to wine- and fruit-growing. Today three generations live and work together on the farm. They diligently pursue the idea of being nature-friendly in both grape and wine production. In practice, this means that the biggest and most important work is done in the vineyard, where most of the quality is born, which they then carefully mature with conscientious winemaking in their wine cellar.
The wines basically »just« continue the story from the vineyard. The main characteristic of wines produced (among which they are especially proud of the traditional Brda varieties: rebula and sauvignonasse), due to the nature-friendly way of producing grapes and turning them into wine, are extremely characterful and varietal wines that are truly and irreplaceable theirs.

Jakot Plešivo (the grapes are Tokaj Friulano - Jakot being Tokaj backwards!) has a sparkling and intensive golden colour. It has an intense and rich smell, reminiscent of Mediterranean flowers (mimosa and acacia), citrus and fruit like pears, white peaches and nectarines. A hint of mown grass and a fresh touch of used oak barrels round the scent into a harmonious whole. The scent of the Brda soil and a gentle scent of milky caramel come to light when the wine begins to breathe. The wine is dry, soft, mineral, fresh, has intense flavours and a long aftertaste, and last but not least, full-bodied with elegant harmony and balance.
