Vi-Vin Saksida

The Saksida estate is located in the village of Zalošče, in the heart of the Vipava Valley. Outstanding vineyards and well-maintained vines are their greatest treasure. The soil consists of flysch, which is the best type of ground for viticulture. Saksida mixes traditional cellaring methods with the state-of-the-art technology and oak-cask ageing to produce unique and rich wines that are a clear reflection of the region.

Zelen’s typical aromas cannot be confused with any other. It’s reminiscent of citrus and apples, with undertones of green herbs, particularly sage. As its aroma indicates, it is elegant and delicate on the palate, while rich and harmonious.Zelen is an indigenous variety that grows only in the Vipava area and nowhere else. Zelen was the first mentioned and described in the renowned book, Vinoreja, in 1844. The author, Matija Vertovec (Vertovez), the first expert in viticulture and winemaking in Slovenia and one of the more educated individuals of his day, characterised the varietal among the “more noble” white varieties. Since its yield, compared with other varieties, is small and demanding to grow, it was on the verge of extinction. Zelen is named after its characteristic bright green leaves and very green grapes.

It has a distinctive fruity character, light tannin and a slightly higher acidity and alcohol. It requires a perfect, sunny position and a small yield per vine - the only way to produce a real Barbera with its aromas of sour cherries, currants and berries. The taste is fresh, lively and rich with light prune and jam notes. Due to its light tannins and pronounced fruitiness it is delicious even if aged for only a short time in stainless steel.Barbera originates in Italy’s Piedmont, and arrived in Vipava in the 1960s and quickly became a ‘Vipava specialty”.

The taste is fresh, lively and rich with light prune and jam notes. Due to its light tannins and pronounced fruitiness it is delicious even if aged for only a short time in stainless steel. But with its higher alcohol and extract it can also developed nicely with some aging in oak barrels. It merges beautifully with beef, venison, smoked meats and aged hard cheeses.
